This is a very interesting question.

I personally would not want a friend of mine to see my T. For me, the reasons are purely selfish...I don't want to share my T! I know he sees many other clients besides myself of course, but I don't know these other people which somehow makes it okay. With a friend though, it would be a different thing. I've talked to my therapist about this b/c I did have a friend who was interested in seeing my T and his attitude was that it would be fine only if it was fine w/me.
He mentioned he would not schedule us on the same days, etc...but yet I still felt uncomfortable with the situation. I ended up telling my friend how I felt and she understood completely.

Since your friend is letting you know that it's OK w/him then that's wonderful and you're very fortunate to have such a great referral.
