In brief: Normal

Discuss with therapist who is a trained professional and is used to dealing with this normal phenomenon.
Should be no problem unless it becomes obsessive and interferes with your daily functioning.

In brief: No

Well-trained, professional therapists understand the intensity of transference feelings.
They work constructively with them, for the patient's benefit. Much of the work of therapy involves exploring, understanding, and resolving such feelings -- because they mirror the relationship patterns for which the person is seeking help. At times in their work, therapists do seek personal supervision.
