Like Dinah, I tend to avoid calling him anything, but I do refer to him as Dr. That's how he refers to himself, and he never invited me to call him anything different. I think it would be really weird to call him by his first name.

That being said, my clients call me by my first name. One actually asked me if she should call me Mrs. [ ], which I immediately said no to. That would also seem weird to me. Don't know if I will go by Dr. when I am done with my degree, or just continue using my first name. I can see value to both. Perhaps I'll ask clients in the initial session what they would like to be called and what they would like to call me.

What do y'all think? Would this be helpful?
