The intention for maintaining a blog as a therapist is for marketing, education, advocacy, and providing content in a technologically changing field. I want to do this while making patients aware of the risks and benefits of engagement on technological and social media where therapists are present. A therapeutic relationship is a professional relationship and in today’s technological climate, a social media presence or following your therapist on social media is not to be confused with a relationship outside of therapy. Ethical, professional, and therapeutic boundaries must be followed and honored.
This blog is not psychotherapy, a replacement for a therapeutic relationship, or substitute for mental health and medical care. It is not seeking an endorsement, request, or rating from past or current clients. Nothing stated in any post should be considered professional advice. The information contained in posts is general information for educational purposes only.
Please consult your physician or mental health provider regarding advice or support for your health and wellbeing.
