Default How to make those feelings go away

I have no problem feeling a bond and a sense of love towards my therapist. What I donít want is the more inappropriate side to those feelings. Wanting more. I donít want to want more than I have. Not from him. Not towards a married man

How do you make those feelings go away? Everyone says talk about it with your t but I know the whole litany of things he could say. Each one more devastating than the next. If I talk to him about this I donít think heíd refer me out but he could change boundaries. I have no intention of behaving inappropriately but these feelings are killing me. Itís wierd to have such chemistry with someone yet thereís no possibility of more ever happening at least romantically. The universe mocks me.

What do I do? Seek another t? What a rabbit hole that is. The whole catch is that therapy doesnít work for me without strong positive feelings mutually. My therapy works very well otherwise.
