I think that it is important to consider that by leaving a therapist that did something that you disagreed with (e.g. spent money, supported a cause) is a rather harsh judgment. And I cannot imagine that any of us would want to be judged so harshly. We go to therapy to be accepted and feel safe - something we do not always get on the outside. And isn't part of therapy learning to accept the strengths and weaknesses of both yourself and others?

More broadly, everyone has different values, especially as it pertains to money. I don't care about a fancy car. But I like my home a lot and others may think it is too big for a single person. Another friend of mine takes very fancy vacations - I don't feel comfortable doing so. But I care for her just the same.

Unless a therapist participated in some awful cause (e.g Ku Klux Klan or some other bigoted organization) or was really ostentatious about how he/she spent money, I would focus almost exclusively on whether that person was helping.
