The first may have ( we didn't, understandably, hear all the relevant details ) the second didn't, though perhaps unwise. There are degrees of wrong. I know of a shrink who had a long affair with someone who was both a patient and a colleague, and then neglected her when she took an overdose, such that she died when this was highly unlikely to have happened had he responded properly and competently - and he got off scot-free. The having coffee wasn't really in itself wrong, but unwise, and with the potential to have bcome more wrong. Where the patient feels uncomfortable, it is wise to move on to a different therapist. This really was far from being as predatory as it can become in fortunately very rare cases.
Everyone has problems in their life which they don't fully sort out, even shrinks. That's fine so long as they try hard not to allow this to interfere with therapy of other people in need of help. Don't feel scared - the great majority of shrinks are as moral and pleasant as any other social group - maybe even more so than bank managers or car salesmen ?
