I guess this is one of the most common questions about therapy and therapists. Transference. You're in this intense (but completely one-sided) emotional relationship with this person who is caring and focused on you. So many people develop all these intense feelings...

Is your attraction physical? Is he same-sex/opposite sex? (Not that it matters - heterosexuals often fall in love with same-sex therapists)?

Can you talk to him about it? It's a painful conversation to have, but if he's a skilled therapist, he should be able to handle it and help you work through your (unreciprocated) feelings. If he can't talk honestly and constructively about it with you and the feeling persists, you might need to find somebody else.
