You Have Options for Financial Justice After Experiencing Therapy Abuse
Therapist abuse occurs when the therapist crosses professional boundaries, often taking advantage of the patient’s vulnerability and trust. Some patients often develop a phenomenon known as “transference” during therapy. This is when they feel a deep relationship developing with their therapist because they share deeply hidden feelings with them.
When a therapist fails to set professional boundaries to manage transference or even uses these feelings to their advantage, that is abuse. Exploitative therapists might even progress to inappropriate activity, sexual assault, or even ongoing intimate relationships with their patients.
We’re well-aware that financial recovery can’t undo what happened or erase your trauma. Yet, it can play a critical role in securing the mental health services you may need moving forward. It also gives you options for rebuilding your life and processing what happened.

We Investigate Your Therapy Abuse Case and Gather Evidence
Your therapy abuse case needs evidence to secure compensation. The information in these cases depends greatly on the circumstances. When possible, we identify, preserve, and utilize evidence that includes:
- The client’s side of the story, told under oath, often as a deposition
- Texts, emails, and other written communication from the therapist
- Call logs and other data documenting professional boundary violations
- Pictures, social media posts, and other documentation of an intimate relationship
- Eyewitness statements from others
- Treatment records showing frequent sessions, extended sessions, and other unusual behavior
- Documentation of economic and non-economic damages
Our Indiana Therapist Abuse Lawyers Understand the Damages Victims Suffer
When a patient endures abuse or exploitative behavior from a trusted therapist, it can cause lasting psychological and emotional harm. The recoverable damages in the civil case against the therapist often center on the immense emotional distress suffered. These patients often need additional support and therapy to manage their feelings following abuse, yet their trust in healthcare professionals has eroded. This makes this process additionally difficult for them.
While the psychological effects of the abuse are often the most difficult to overcome, many of our clients also endured other damages. We assess the specifics of your situation to determine what constitutes fair compensation. You could recover both economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Treatment for physical injuries (if applicable)
- Current and future care for related mental health concerns
- Ongoing therapy and support costs as needed
- Income lost because of missed work
- Miscellaneous expenses with receipts
- Pain, suffering, emotional distress, and other intangible losses
We’ve secured five- and six-figure settlements for survivors of therapy abuse across the country. By reading our case results, you can glean insight into what it’s like to work with our team and the energy we put into building compelling cases.
