I had my last video session with my amazing therapist yesterday and I’m feeling super emotional about it. I’d been seeing her for a year and a half, but her office is considered “short term” treatment. I’ve had a therapy session with a new long term and it’s bringing up all the anxiety and emotions having to re-explain everything all over again. Has anyone dealt with that and how did you do it?

I get it.
I became attracted to my therapist and ultimately decided to walk away from working with her because I didn’t want to bring it up or worse, possibly mess up her life. She has no idea, but for awhile, she was my rock.

Oof, that’s hard. I haaaaaate the whole “explaining every single thing over again “ thing.Maybe if you explain what you’re feeling to the new therapist? Say exactly what you said here about the anxiety this is bringing up? I find that when I’m honest about even my fear of working with a new therapist, it really helps us connect. Sort of an ice breaker.

@Mccann1 Thank you! Yes, I did bring up the anxiety about it and how to really go about it all. @CD1 that is tough, I’m sorry!
