I had pretty much the same reaction as everyone else. I thought I would be fine with it but when I ran into a friend who was seeing someone else in the same office, it really rattled me. I felt so invaded, like the secret was out. Which was stupid because she already knew I was in therapy.

However, another one of my friends recommends her therapist all the time and has dragged half her extended family in. And she is fine with it. So each situation is different.

My therapist wouldn't see you though, if he knew he was seeing your friend. He told me once he needs to keep the boundaries really tight so I could feel completely safe. I've always wondered what would happen if someone started with him and he found out a few months into it that there was a connection. It must be hard on therapists to not react with a "oh no." And then keep everything separate.
