Hmm... good question. I do the first name thing. I never asked. It just seemed more natural.

I understand wanting to see your therapist as an authority figure, but in my opinion using the "Dr." title is too formal and doesn't "fit" the relationship, and sometimes even serves to create distance and avoid (emotional) intimacy.
