Confused and frustrated

I have multiple trama from my past. I was also given up for adoption. I've been seeing a therapist for several years. I've had a lot of contact. She gave me something that nobody else ever has. I'm very attached to her. She's slowly pulling away. But I don't feel like I've dealt with my abandonment issues yet. She's changed in a lot of ways. I'm not sure I can do this. It feels like she's abandoning me. I want to stop working in therapy. I want to stop being transparent. I'm not ready to have less contact. I don't know if I'm even making any since. It's very painful. I'm not sure if this is the way it's supossed ti be. Does anyone have any experience with this???

Sunnative, please talk to her about your feelings. Your feelings are normal and so is a certain distancing within a healthy therapeutic relationship, and the setting of boundaries. I know how wonderful it is to finally feel heard and accepted and cared for and how painful it is when it feels like you are losing that. You are not in fact losing that! This is just another part of what therapy needs to be. It may be going to fast for it to feel comfortable for you. Please talk to her about this and do not give up on transparency (how would THAT help?) or the therapy itself.
