> The kinds of strong romantic feelings you have toward your therapist often occur in the course of therapy and can be very helpful in coming to understand yourself. However, for your therapist to make any kind of romantic or sexual overture is a violation of professional ethics and will subvert the therapeutic process as well.
> Erika Schmidt, LCSW

In light of Fallen4myT's question, what seems to me sometimes to be a proliferation of accounts on this board of therapists with poor boundaries, and your answer to Fallen, I wonder if you could let people know what they can do if they feel their therapist might have stepped over the line in terms of sexual overtures. How do they assess if the therapist has stepped over that boundary? What are their options in terms of taking care of themselves? What resources might be available to help them with this?

Thank you.
