Mine has, at first accidentally. Now he's really quite open. At this very moment he's really really open.

At the very beginning, I'd get really annoyed when he did it.

Later, he blurted something that helped me understand a pattern of interaction we were stuck in, and we got past it.

Now, ten years into therapy, it feels sort of natural. He's someone I care about. But I think if he discloses as much to all his clients as he does to me, it might be a technical problem on his part. However, from my earlier experience with him, I'd guess he doesn't. Maybe he figures that with all I know about him, picked up through schedule changes, etc. over the years, that it would be silly to go back to being a blank slate.

The other day he even continued a phone conversation with his wife in front of me. (I arrived a few minutes early and there is no waiting room in this setup.) I have no idea why, because I have no desire to be his wife, but his casual "I love you" made my stomach lurch.

I wonder what that was about.

Anyway, I think I'll make sure I'm not early from now on.
