> GG: Thank you for explaining about my T opening up. I need to hear stuff clarified like that.
> I've probably asked this a ton of times but is this right: Even though we haven't had sex or anything, or kissed yet, the way things are for me is still bad because T's should not have friend relationships with clients?

T's should never develop friend relationships with current clients. In addition, they are strongly discouraged from developing them after therapy terminates. Like others, I worry about your use of the word "yet" when you mention physical affection with him. It's okay and not uncommon to have sexual feelings for a T, but the T should make it very clear and repeat this as needed that this behavior is out of the question. And the T's actions should match this stance with appropriate boundaries. So if your T is giving you any indication that physical affection could be forthcoming and/or would be acceptable, I would be greatly concerned for your well-being.

About email. Llrrrpp's post about how to turn on Babblemail is accurate. That is a very secure way for us to communicate. I understand your concerns about privacy, and I agree that we have to be careful about sharing personal information with internet contacts. If you wish to send me an email, I will keep your personal information private and would not share it with anyone else.

You likely can also find your state's professional board information from a search engine such as Google. If you search using Board of ________ (your T's profession, i.e. psychology, psychiatry, social work, counselor, etc.) and your state name, you will probably find it. Most state's government websites have links to the different agencies and state boards.
