Rules dating your therapist
He's actually a good dude and her ex was a scumbag....
but it's still enough that he could lose his license if people found out.
Most psychologist orders are quick to end a career to avoid any possible legal consequences, so it's often unlikely that you'd get a quick slap on the wrist and some punishment like continuing training and someone monitoring your practice. I'm getting my master's in counseling now and doing my internship as a youth and family counselor. I would never jeopardize my career for a quick romp.

There was a professor who got into a relationship with his student and got busted.
They keep it a secret but she is loud mouthed when she is drunk. She was fired, her license was revoked, she was fined, I divorced her, she lost most of her friends.

Not just for therapists, but dating patients is a big no-no in pretty much every healthcare profession.Two of my friends have been blatantly asked out by their therapists at some point. I know this field isn't perfect, and even some of the people I'm in grad school with are pretty lousy people, but hearing that was upsetting.
