Default Saddened over my therapist's impending departure

For the past 3 weeks I have been feeling overwhelming sadness because my therapist and I are not going to be able to see each other come the end of September. That is because my therapist will work at a bigger office within the private practice she is working in and it will be too far for me to drive. When my therapist told me, I was sad but at the same time I was happy and proud for her because she is advancing in her career. Sadness and the thought of missing her are 2 of the 3 main thoughts/feelings that have been dominating my mind as of late. The other feeling is love. My therapist and I have been meeting for 3 years and during that time I have developed romantic feelings for her. My love is very deep and intense for her. The fact that she genuinely cares about my well being made it easy for those affectionate feelings to develop. She has shown me that she truly cares about my mental health. She is there for me in therapy whenever I talk about something difficult or when something negative happened to me. Her and I have such a great rapport. Her warm care allows me to share all the troubles that I have been dealing with and she validates those thoughts and feelings. It was not difficult for me to fall in love with her.

I have these intense loving feelings for my therapist because she is everything that I want in a romantic partner. She is caring, warm and emphatic. I admire her fashion choices because that is what makes her elegant. She is also the type of person that is not afraid of calling me out on my discrepancies. I like someone who has a strong character and not a push over. I also get the sense that she is type of person who is fun to be around. The type of woman that I would love to spend my time with. Her smile is such a beautiful sight to see. My therapist is a gorgeous looking woman and that is what makes her glamorous. She is everything I want. A lot of the times, just going to see her in session makes me have a small boost for my mood. I just love her so much.

Her absence will create not only a huge void in my life but in my heart as well. My therapist is the person that I love the most in my life.
