Hello all, thank you for the comments and observations. I feel so confused. I reached out to her for clarification but no response. I have very much valued her advice on so many things and can't believe that she would just leave me hanging, but that seems to be what's happening. Usually she replies to email right away, but it's been 4 days now with no response.

In response to aleksandra's posts, she did tell me that this was her daughter, and had specifically said that the dealings between her daughter and I were separate from the therapist and I. Her daughter offered an inexpensive price for the work, which I accepted. Then she ended up doing more work than either of us had expected, so I offered a higher price, which she accepted. I was trying to do the right thing, and didn't realize problems were going to surface. Now it is apparent that the work, which looked nice on its surface, was substandard. The problems are deep and not easily fixed. It was cobbled together quickly and now it shows.

I do have a sibling, with whom I want a harmonious relationship, but he is an alcoholic and doesn't seem to want one with me. The therapist has siblings too, none of whom she speaks to. It crossed my mind that possibly she is quick to shut me out just like she has shut out her siblings. Except that I was paying her, for whatever difference that makes.
