To everyone who was responded - I do truly appreciate your input and and insights. Your suggestions have helped me put things into perspective.

After I asked, she did tell me where she went to school - but it seemed like it was made into more of a deal than it needed to be. I know that everything asked/said in therapy is probably for a reason, so it is natural for her to question my motives. But in this case I was just curious, being a student myself. But I also like the point you made, Witti, there may be another aspect to my questions I am not fully considering.

I definitely understand how a T's self-disclosure might help or hurt, so I totally respect her boundaries in what she will or will not reveal to me.

As many of you suggested, I might bring it up this issue when I meet with her tomorrow. Especially a question about her therapeutic orientation, which I something that a client has a right to know, as many of you mentioned. I should probably not be so fearful, since I have discussed my not-so-great experience with my last T previously. One of the [many] issues I am working on in therapy myself is trust and my own self-disclosure, so this might be a good jumping off point.

I'll keep you posted!
