Daisy, that would rattle me, too. I'd hate the collision of worlds--your personal, intimate relationship with your therapist and the public persona (which includes other clients) he has on the web.
Photos of him and his wife can't be comfortable, either. I struggle with thinking about my therapist and her family. I know that we won't "ride off into the sunset," and in the past year, I have come to feel that my therapy is much, much too important to turn into something romantic. I feel desire for my therapist, but at the same time, I sense in deeper parts of myself how traumatic and destructive it could be if she actually broke the boundaries.
But I still HATE the fact that there are other people in her life more important than me, and that she has other clients.
From reading your posts, I can tell that you and your therapist can probably get through just about anything, though, if you keep talking about it :) You are doing the right thing. I admire your bravery in bringing it up.
