Maybe this first part is over-explaining, but never mind.
My wife is semi-estranged (more like 3/4-7/8 estranged) from her parents, who live quite some distance away. They have expressed a desire to repair the relationship, and my wife told them she would not consider it without attending some individual therapy first, followed by some sessions which would include them. Her parents seemed cautiously receptive to this. She had visited a therapist in the not-so-distant past, in the city where we used to live, and had a good working relationship with her. She told her parents that this is the therapist she’d like to see and that, furthermore, since we have very little money (which is true) her parents would have to foot the bill (I’m not looking for opinions on the propriety of this part of the situation). They said they’d think about it and asked for the therapist’s name, which my wife provided.
Yesterday my wife got an email from the therapist that my wife’s father had called her, asking a bunch of “prepared” questions about the therapist’s credentials, methods, etc.
My question is, was it kosher for the therapist to reveal to my wife that my wife’s father had called her? The therapist gave no details as to the questions asked or her own answers, beyond that she refused to answer a question that was of a “personal” nature, and that none of the questions concerned my wife directly.
