You know, some therapists tend to use "other clients" as a way to inform us or make a point. My son's therapist does this a lot, though he seems to be careful to keep it in reference to previous or past clients. As in, "I had this client who would..." But he uses a ton of self disclosure as well.

My therapist almost never (2x that I can remember all this time) talks about other clients, past, present or future. I sometimes wish he would talk more about his work so I could draw some conclusions about how we are working together. I always think of GG who really protected that blank slate approach.

I think you already know the answer. If it is bugging you, bring it up. I bet you can think of a way to do it without being critical. You know him so well.
