Anonymous said: I have a new T. I had the intake last week. Since that I'm having nightmares of her leaving me or chasing me. She's an intern but has lots of experience and I'm afraid that I'm to complicated for her and that because of me she's not going to get her degree. Also I have difficulty being honest with her and I have lied about my acting out behavior. I just got so afraid and answered in a reflex when she asked. I don't know her and don't trust her yet. Any advice? Thanks so much!

Hi there,

The only advice I have for you is to give it time. Building relationships take time, and this especially applies in a therapeutic relationship where you may only get to see your T every so often rather than on a daily basis… so give it a few sessions, try to be as honest as comfortably possible, and maybe even bring up the nightmares (there might be some meaning there that can be discussed in therapy).

Best of luck to you and I’m glad you are getting the help you deserve.
