He loves you oppressively?

From Daughters of Song by Paula Huston (think "Huston, we have a problem"):
It feels good talking this way; she finds herself sighing with sad pleasure as she recounts the events of her vanished childhood.

Finally she stops… “Your father must be a very strong man,” Jan says.

“He is.”

“He must be proud of you.”

She laughs. “More than that. Much much more. You can’t even imagine it.”

“He loves you oppressively?”

Huston, p. 101
When I read things like this, I wonder, is that me?
