does therapist need good relationship to advise?

Posted by Joslynn on January 19, 2005, at 14:20:18

I am starting a new relationship and am so clueless about this, didn't have good role models. So far, this seems like a relatively normal relationship compared to my others, and this person does not have any inner demons & is not a player. So I want to give this an honest try.

Of course this is something I discuss in therapy. But my therapist is divorced, has been for some time, and doesn't seem interested in dating again. I guess she is close to 60.

My question is, can someone who has been divorced for years and years really be able to guide me in a relationship? I sometimes wish I had a therapist who was happily married. It would make me feel more secure about discussing relationships.

What do others think about this? My therapist does have a lot of knowledge about family dynamics, depression, communicating, etc., but the fact is, her marriage ended and she has not been in one for years. I want to get married one day to a nice man and stay married.

Can she help me anyway? Sometimes I wonder...
