> While I agree that unclear boundaries can be a problem, if I had to call my therapist Dr. Spock all the time, I would feel as if there was a real distance there. Almost as if he was very unapproachable. In my case, I keep him further than arms length as it is (in a distant state if possible), and by calling him Dr. Spock, that would only add to the distance. I can see the importance of keeping boundaries. But can't they be placed elsewhere?

i guess they could
i had a terrible experience with a doctor that went by thier 1st name, maybe that is why i feel this way.
