Family Therapist Starts Asking For $20 Tips, Leaves A Bad Taste In Her Client’s Mouth

ADVERTISEMENT

Depending on where you are from, every time you look at a restaurant menu, you might be doing some mental back-of-the-napkin math to calculate the tip at the end. For others, what you see is what you get, unless the service is above and beyond. But what happens when you get a request for a tip from someone like a therapist?

This is the situation one netizen found themselves in when their kid’s therapist asked them to give a little extra at the end of every session. They turned to the internet for advice after deciding to fire their therapist, and people debated the expansion and ethics of tipping culture in the comments.

In some places, a tip is almost universally expected

What the heck? Sounds like she's a self-proclaimed "therapist" with absolutely no credentials. What this person was asking for violates the ethics code of just about every professional mental health organization I can think of. OP should not only run, but report this person to their state's licensing board.

Highly, highly unprofessional, not to mention unethical! If the therapist isn't happy with the insurance payments, then she needs to not contract with them and just charge the patient the full amount. And good f*****g luck with that.
