No but he still could especially if the abuse is serious and continues but the Law doesn't force him to say anything here and he may tell you to do so but all up to you here.  Just don't let this get out of hand before you really get beat up or worse and it does happen. Good luck

Therapist's mandates vary from state to state, if you are in the US, healthcare providers do have mandates for domestic abuse.
