I think he has read, Dr Richard Gartners books.
I'm not quick to write off therapists, especially ones who work with boundries.
While seeing T, I was also asked what I thought of our " relationship" and how I could use that to understand other relationships from my past and present.
Transference between a T and thier client is a big deal... seems he knows this and is trying to see your thoughts on the " relationship".
Maybe he is, in fact trying to keep the SA issues OUT of the sessions
IDK, I seem the minority, but never base my opinions on what other say.
