Well, brilliant opening move to have arranged to start the CBT. Maybe if you modify your behaviour, so there are unlikely to BE further confrontations, she won't have to resort to white lies, or anything else, to avoid confrontations. Minf you, lying can become a habit, so she may take a little while to adjust to not needing them.
The phone thing, well, she may have felt it WAS nothing, but she expected You to see it as definitely Something ? if you're saying that she seems to expwect violent responses from you, when this has actually never happened, maybe there have been events in her past which have led her to make these assumptions and expect violence ? Maybe someone else taught her to feel the need to lie, not you ? Hope CBt helps you to break the broken record
