my mom is making me see therapist because I have no interest in movies and I dont have a job at age 22. She told me to lie and say its my decision to see therapist. I signed a confidentiality form from my therapist. I overheard my mother talk with my therapist over the phone having the therapist say I am mentally sixk, that I need to be put in a mental institution, and be put on disability mentioning its not normal for people my age not to have a job and not like movies.I explained to my therapist multiple times i dont like movies because most of todays actors are awful that dont have a job because of economy. I showed her proof i applied to multiple places.
Is this legal my therapist discussing this with mom .
May I file grifance on therapist. What can I say in the complaint .
You need to speak to the therapist. It is also not clear if you mother has a limited conservatorship. If she does, this is appropriate.
I hope you can clear things up with the therapist.

Unless you are under a conservatorship, your mother does not have the ability to make you see a therapist. Another issue would be if you signed a release that the therapist could speak with your mother. Another possible issue could be if the therapist was just listening to your mother and not talking about you. Once again, unless there is conservatorship, you could do whatever you want to do, including terminating a relationship with the therapist.
