I'm entering a difficult phase with my therapist, in which I think (fear?) she's got some of her own issues impacting my therapeutic time. This is tricky territory for me, as I generally choose to try and help people, and do try to see the therapeutic relationship as a microcosm for figuring out how to deal with people in the wild, but... do I really want to be paying an hourly rate to investigate how my therapist reacts as a person to the things I say when trying to work through my issues? Am I being a privileged consumer of services, denying the humanity of another? Is my therapist inserting her issues into the mix? Is transference necessarily a one way street in treatment?

I think you probably bring your concern up with your therapist and figure it out together if at all possible.

Especially if your concern about this is likely to affect your comfort/ability to address other things with her, I assume she would want to know this.

Transference/counter-transference is definitely a two-way street...
