Therapist Feels Bad For Dating Patient's Daughter

UTICA, NY—Admitting that he feels “pretty guilty about it,” clinical psychologist William Nesbitt told reporters Thursday that he has found himself in an increasingly uncomfortable situation ever since he began dating the 23-year-old daughter of one of his patients. “It’s not technically against the rules or anything, but I can’t help feeling a little bad about it every time her father comes in for his weekly appointment,” said Nesbitt, 47, adding that he is “still looking for the right time” to disclose the four-month-long relationship to his patient. “What can I say? I certainly didn’t plan for this to happen. Allison and I just really hit it off. And it’s not affecting my work. If anything, it’s given me better insight into some of her father’s anxiety problems.” Nesbitt added that while the relationship is going well, his girlfriend has “a ton of daddy issues she needs to work out.”
