Hello, I would like to provide my input on your question. I think that in being the alienated parent that schedules the appointment, it would be acceptable to speak with your therapist about any concerns beforehand. I do think however that the therapist will only be able to really understand what is going on by meeting with all parties involved at one time (*including the non alienated parent who could be contributing to the problem). I am not sure exactly what the statements mean that the therapist made: "mom has to know," I would need a little more information about the conversation to give my input about what is said. I do think that it does take a true professional to recognize that this can be a problem, and if you sense a certain tone in your therapist, perhaps you have not found the right one. Goodtherapy.org gives you the opportunity to do an advanced search for your zip code in order to find the right therapist to fit your needs..0
