Please don't beat yourself up for this. I would be surprised if very many of us hadn't googled a therapist. When I was looking for a new T, I google everyone I interviewed as a matter of course, and I have no remorse. My current T has *nothing* coming up on google, which really gets me.

Here's how I look at it (and I know this works for me, but may not for you): They have all of this information about us, and we really have very little about them. And they have so much more control over our relationships - they decide the time, the place, the rules, etc. of therapy. Googling them kind of equalizes things. It's a way to connect on *your* schedule, in *your* way. I think it's totally fair.

If I were a therapist, I would just assume that all of my clients had googled me. In fact, I'd make sure there wasn't anything out there that I didn't want clients to know. And . . . I'd probably google them, too. Is *that* bad??
