There's a great conversation in "Best Friends". Goldie Hawn says to Burt Reynolds 'You know what the worst part is? Right now I need to go and tell my best friend all my problems, and you're my best friend.' That's what comes to my mind sometimes in therapy, substituting therapist for best friend of course.

It seems like sometimes even with the most professional of therapists, their lives enter the therapy room and affect us. But they are no longer the detached third party in the room.

It sounds as if both of you are doing pretty well, or as well as possible under the circumstances. She's being professional, and she's let you know she's taking care of herself and has a support system. You're being honest with her about your feelings. If I've got that right, then I admire both of you. My therapist and I seem to have trouble maintaining those qualities in times like that.

If she's very professional, and has a support system, is it possible that she understands that it will be an issue with clients and has prepared for that?

Therapy is such a strange relationship sometimes.
