If you take it upon yourself to see a therapist, chances are you need that unbiased person to confide in and truly trust with your deepest secrets and innermost thoughts. Often times it takes a few tries to find someone you mesh with, so if a friend, family member, or significant other were to ask for your therapist's name for their own use, would you offer it up? I know I wouldn't want someone I might vent about to go to the same person as me, even though they are sworn to secrecy, but what about you? Where do you stand on sharing therapists?
