There's a great group of attorneys on this forum. Each attorney brings their own unique perspective & experience to a situation. Mine is but one of many. That said, if you would like to talk, I'd be happy to do so. If not, best wishes.

Of course not. What you propose is that third parties be able to interfere with the confidential relationship of a patient and therapist, somehow dictate what they should talk about and who they should include, and then concoct a claim because someone elses therapy does not turn out how you would like. Obviously, you and your wife have issues and the therapist may or may not be helping, but that is not your call. It is also not the therapist's fault if your wife is lying to her.
No, for two reasons. 1) Georgia law does not recognize the right to recover for emotional distress without a direct physical injury or "impact." This is commonly referred to as the "impact rule." (see: http://bit.ly/13ksJBG) 2) You don't have standing to claim malpractice because you were not treated by the therapist. The therapist didn't wrong you, the therapist only allegedly wronged your wife.
Answering questions does not create an attorney/client relationship. I only am your attorney if I have entered into a written contract, signed by me, wherein I expressly assent to be your attorney. Nothing I post should be construed as legal advice to be acted upon, it is merely a legal opinion.
