Privacy and this Website

Personal information collected on this website is limited to the IP address of the computer used to access the site.  Your IP address may be logged for statistical purposes only.  No cookies are used by this website. We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. Occasionally, we may provide links to other sites of interest. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about any linked sites. By using this site, you consent to our privacy policy.  If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page. 

Social Media Policy


I do maintain a separate business email that is available to clients. However, it is important to be aware that email is not considered to be a completely secure or private form of communication. Emails may be retained in the logs of yours or my service providers. Although unlikely, it is possible for system administrators to view logs of email communication. If you choose to communicate with my practice via email, you understand that information shared in this way may be subject to privacy limitations outside of our control.

Social Network Sites (e.g. Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, etc.)

As you may have noticed while exploring this site, I currently maintain pages for my therapy practice on several social networking sites.  These sites provide a useful platform for sharing interesting information relating to mental health topics.  Anyone is free to view these pages and choose to "like" or "subscribe" to them.  However, for current and former clients, I feel it is important to note that by interacting with me or my practice on social networking sites, you may compromise your own privacy and confidentiality as a client. While anyone is free to subscribe to my public pages, I generally do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients. I believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. Please do not use messaging on social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn to contact me regarding your own personal medical concerns or regarding therapy with me. These sites are not secure and I may not read these messages in a timely fashion.

Text (SMS) Messaging

I am not equipped to accept text (SMS) messages at this time.

Online Review Sites

You may find my psychology practice listed on sites such as Yelp, Healthgrades, Google Places, Bing, or other places which list businesses. Some of these sites include forums in which users rate their providers and add reviews. Many of these sites comb search engines for business listings and automatically add listings regardless of whether the business has added itself to the site. If you should find my listing on any of these sites, please know that my listing is NOT a request for a testimonial, rating, or endorsement.

The American Psychological Association’s Ethics Code states under Principle 5.05 that it is unethical for psychologists to solicit testimonials: “Psychologists do not solicit testimonials from current therapy clients/patients or other persons who because of their particular circumstances are vulnerable to undue influence.” Individuals are free to leave reviews as they choose. However, due to confidentiality concerns, I do not respond to any review on any of these sites, whether it is positive or negative.

Content Disclaimer

As part of my private practice, I maintain a blog on general mental health concerns, relationship issues, and parenting here on my website.  This is a service I provide for current clients, prospective clients, and others who are interested in learning more about these topics.

All content on this website is provided for informational and educational purposes only and is not intended to be a substitute for consulting with a qualified mental health professional.  Using this site does not create a therapist-patient relationship, and any information used is done so at your own risk.
