How do you kick someone out? End a nine year relationship, kick them out, potentially to the street?

Gritty details: I'm a guy in my 40's, he is in his 50's. I let him stealth move in after dating for a few months. I pay all the bills, I bought the house before meeting him, everything is in my name. I thought he just needed a little help getting back on his feet. He has valuable skills, but is a terrible self-promoter, and has no real business sense. I left this morning to go to work, and he was wrapped up in an electric blanket reading, that is how I expect to find him this evening. My therapist, and friends all think I should dump him. I've suggested he is depressed, but he refuses to consider therapy. I just can't imagine how to start the conversation. And I feed super guilty because he really has nothing and may be sleeping on the street when I kick him out. Right now his only redeeming qualities include walking the dog when I work late, and making overly elaborate dinners.
How do you start the breakup process?
