    Answered . Sounds like a predator to me. Doubtful that an attorney would take this on but you are encouraged to at least contact an attorney who handles Sexual Exploitation and Abuse by Mental Health Professionals. You can also file a complaint with the State Board that regulates psychiatrists.

    Answered . I do not see it as being a big problem, maybe a little inappropriate, but certainly not something you should do something about. Concentrate on the important things in life and try not to sweat the small stuff, and remember it is almost all small stuff. You can't let other people determine your happiness, just forget about it and be happy in life.
