In the US (at least in CA) patient confidentiality does not extend to ongoing (current) abuse situations - elder abuse, child abuse, abuse of any with special needs OR abuse of a patient, medically or mental health wise -- even if the patient doesn't believe they are being abused.

However, I think each individual therapist would have to look at their own ethically obligation to doing what is best for you, which may come in conflict with reporting the abusing therapist. So it is a slippery slope. It could put the new therapist in a bad spot, couldn't it? Especially since she works with your current therapist.
