I vote not to do it unless there is no other option. A friend and I ended up assigned to the same counselor at the university when we were in college. It wasn't a huge problem, but it was uncomfortable. My friend felt funny mentioning situations that involved me b/c I have a unique name and the T would know who she was talking abt etc. The worst thing was that the T was pushing me to terminate when I didn't want to and pushing my friend to stay in therapy when she didn't want to. The T also wasn't that good, I guess.

On the other hand, I asked my current T to get me some reccommendations for my ex-boyfriend. That went really well. Good T's know other good T's (and who should be avoided). I would see if your friend could get some names.
