Hmmm... I guess I wonder *why* she chose to tell you. I don't think the mere fact of her taking them is important, though actually it sounds like it may be to you since you take it as a sign that she's not as "strong" as you'd like. You might think about why her taking meds makes you consider her weak, and to what extent your own need for therapy makes you consider yourself weak.

I would actually find such information somewhat reassuring for two reasons. First, it means I know that the therapist has some first-hand experience with what I'm going through. Second, to the degree that I perceive her as "doing well," it's a hopeful sign that effective treatment is possible.

The other issue is the reason for the self-disclosure, and I'm not sure what to say about that. Perhaps she felt she was normalizing the need for treatment for you?
