Thank you for sharing this, Laura! I've been working with my therapist for nearly one year doing depth, Jungian work, and I almost "broke up" with her. We were able to discuss miscommunications and such, and we're still working together.

It's just that we talk about deep stuff, more than I've shared with any other human. It freaks me out. The idea that I'm paying hundreds of dollars per month for a relationship feels weird too. Thank you for this reminder! I appreciate the work that you do, and the bravery of all therapists :)
