Woman Wants To Report Therapist For Breaking Confidentiality And Speaking To Her Stepmom

Confidentiality between therapists (and all other medical professionals) and their clients is kind of a big deal, which, if breached, is cause for dismissal and removal of their medical license. I mean, if I found out my therapist had shared information discussed in our sessions with someone else, I'd be furious. But If I discovered that she'd shared it with anyone in my family, it would be a whole new level of hell.

Ethical, huh? Understandably, the OP was gutted and betrayed. When she turned to her father for sympathy, he sided with his new wife, leaving her at a loss. It sounds pretty sh**ty for her all-round, but fellow Redditors jumped to her defense, correctly encouraging her to report the therapist and get away from her toxic family as fast as she can.
