I think it is difficult to move out without a job. I suspect your parents are utilizing the power of the purse in that they continue to support you but under condition you do this or that. This is very common.

HIPAA may have been violated unless you signed consent to share Protected Health Information (PHI). HIPAA does not usually have a private right of action though. California privacy laws may have been violated however, and a violation of HIPAA can be used to demonstrate a professional's falling below standard of care. You may ask your therapist for a copy of anything you've signed, and if you've waived confidentiality, you can rescind that if you no longer want 3rd parties knowing the contents of your PHI.
