Good thread. I'm jealous of those who can email. My T doesn't mind emails to keep her up to date between sessions, but her replies are always very short and on the line of "we'll discuss that in session." She's not very computer literate, and it can take a week to get the expected response, but it's very useful now that we are at every other week. If it's really important, I always call and she calls back quickly.

I don't even have my pdoc's email. I do write to him, though, when I think there's been a misunderstanding or I have something to say. He never calls about the writing, and waits for me to bring it up. His point is that he wants me to be able to verbalize these feelings in therapy, which I agree with. that said, he says he's learned a tremendous amount from what I've written and that I do "written" therapy well. He thinks it's cathartic, but I don't view it that way.

I wish I could email my pdoc, but I understand this boundary.
