Help! My therapist friended me!

This is a very interesting article about the extent to which one’s therapist should get involved in your virtual life on the Internet.

Here’s where I stand.  I don’t friend people on FB who see me as clients.  I think that there needs to be a healthy boundary between client and therapist so that the client can grow and focus on the business at hand.  At the same time, however, I do find reading my clients’ blogs to be helpful in understanding how the client is doing between sessions.  I only do this with permission of the client, however.

Any questions?  Feel free to ask me.
