Re: Therapist first name basis Miss Honeychurch

In reply to Therapist first name basis, posted by Miss Honeychurch on January 9, 2004, at 14:45:44

I called my former therapist (a social worker) by her first name. I call my current therapist Dr. So-and-so. I asked her recently what most of her patients call her - by her first name or by Dr. X, and she said that it depends on the patient but she is fine with either one, except when it comes to her young (teen-age) patients, and she prefers they call her Dr. X. I don't know why I started calling her Dr. X but just did. I may call her by her first name some day, but figure she worked hard for that Ph.D., she deserves the title!
