My wife left me do to therapist say I am possessive and controlling witch I am not thisnis his idea of me he also tour my mom and dad apart
Many people blame therapists for saying something they did not say. They are good at leading people to drawing their own conclusions rather than telling them something directly. Of course, there are incompetent therapists who might violate that rule, but to find out would require filing a lawsuit and conducting discovery, likely including depositions. If that is worth it, given the situation, then it is possible.
The response does not form an attorney-client relationship, nor is it intended to be anything other than the educated opinion of the author, and should not be relied upon as legal advice. The response given is a generalization applying to some possible situations. For consideration of the factors which are relevant to any legal problem, please consult an attorney.
IF the therapist said that about you, (s)he likely said it based on what your wife told him/her. And likely (s)he didn't just come out and say it, Likely (s)he said, "if that happened, then..." Or (s)he asked, "Do you think that he might be...?"
The answer is yes. Unfortunately though, the therapist is only being presented with one side of the story. Most therapists don't do that. Good ones ask questions that in your case leads your wife to a conclusion. The other thing to consider is maybe your wife wanted to leave for whatever reasons and blamed it on the therapist because it's easier for some people to do that.
You should consult an attorney in your area.
Best to you,
