I take it you think you are making progress with your T? Because honestly, if I found myself very attracted to a therapist, I would probably try to find a new therapist.

I've thought about it. But it's been about a year and a half, and I'd hate to start over. That's kind of my last resort if I can't find a way to deal with it.

You might want to get a new therapist. Therapy can be hard enough without having to deal with such feelings for your therapist. I really think that therapy should feel as comfortable as possible with as few roadblocks as possible. Good luck.

Is he helping you with the issues that brought you to therapy? Or has therapy went off track?
