Yes, Your therapist should maintain proper boundaries with his/her clients - which means that he or she should not be their friend relative or co-worker. Working in you therapists office as a receptionist violates these boundaries. It could cause potential problems if you were not able to do your job up to expectations and they were dissapointed in you - how would they approach you about this? As a therapist or as a boss. In addition, as a receptionist you would have access to your own and other clients confidential information. This is not appropriate.
