Wow, that's interesting (the article)!!! I had no idea that so many T's worked out of their homes. It would seem to me that security would be the number 1 issue and maintaining boundaries another. Then of course there are other issues already brought up.

I did go to a T once who worked out of her home. The parking was very inconvenient - it was on a residential street next to an electric pole and no sidewalk (i.e., read muddy). Someone else parked behind her garage door - I remember seeing that patient charge out of there very angry. The T's home was very lovely - she told me over the phone to go in and where to go inside. I was very inhibited about opening the door to someone's private home - it just seemed all wrong. There were multiple stories in the home and inside there was a sign telling me I could go to the second floor to get juice or whatever. I never did - just too inhibited. There was a powder room on the ground floor I believe (not sure) and think there was another on the next floor.

The "therapy room" was nicely homey (mildly contemporary) and open to the hallway in which I had entered. It had a door so there was privacy. Can't remember the chair distinctly but it was reasonably comfortable with a large coffee table in front for the juice or anything else I might have wanted to lay out there. I remember looking around actually in awe and the T asked me if I found everything ok. That bothored me because she completely misinterpreted my intentions. Actually I saw a tiny leak in the ceiling and wanted to say something about having that problem myself but felt too put off. A similar thing happened in another T's office that was in a regular professional office building (but no leak).

I never went back - just felt too weird somehow. Maybe it was lack of sleep or being in an unfamiliar area of town or maybe the grief. It just didn't feel right. Perhaps in a different home under different circumstances it would be ok.
