There is a lot of research that suggest that while a therapist should follow up with the standard, "why do you want to know" question, it is OK and even helpful to answer some basic questions. It levels the playing field.

If it were me, I might say, "sometimes I wonder about you, because you tell me virtually nothing. Is there a reason you are so guarded? Or are you afraid I might do something with the information?"

Be prepared with a couple of questions you would like answered...her favorite book, does she ever watch TV, does she like rain, does she have a family...whatever.

Trust goes both ways, you know?
