I just told a friend who wants to be a counselor I think her approach to relationships is highly medicalized. I was encouraged to do so by my psychiatrist. The friend said she doesn't think of therapy as medicine. The conversation has hit a long pause.

Probably not a good attitude for a prospective counselor to have, given the nature of counseling work.

I was stuck for was to explain the detrimental nature of her outlook (to herself and others), which she sees as completely egalitarian.
