My therapist has decided to leave the counseling center I attend and go into her own practice over an hour away.
Still not sure how I feel about that.
She said I have three options:
- I can stay at the center and get a new therapist
- I can go to her practice
- I can stop going to therapy completely.
Here are my issues with each one. Getting a new therapist makes me nervous because that means I have to get used to talking to yet another person. I was just getting comfortable with the one I have right now.
Her new practice is pretty damn far from where my house is. Traveling that far twice a month for 45 minute therapy sessions isn’t really practical. Gas is expensive as it is.
Stopping therapy isn’t smart either. I did that several years ago and I had a really bad time. It’s not really recommended that I do that anyways.
So, I know that I’m just going to have to stay where I am and get a new therapist whether I’m comfortable with it or not. It’s something that I have to do. I guess I just hate change still. I’m trying to work through my own issues and this wasn’t something I expected. I guess I should have saw it coming since she had cleaned out her bookcase a month or so ago. It’s been empty for awhile so I didn’t think much of it. I just thought she was getting ready to put new books in it or something.
