Hello good peoples. If you’ve found your way here you’ve no doubt seen me on Tik Tok, or maybe Instagram. The purpose of this page is to clarify my role when interacting with the Internet public for I am both a person and a licensed therapist.
I do my best to monitor comments to screen for misinformation as it relates to mental health but I may not see them in a timely fashion and I cannot be held responsible for others’ writings. Additionally although I may offer tips for coping strategies and education on mental health, it is not therapy and should not be regarded as such. I cannot ethically conduct therapy over social media and thus any interaction with me is not to be regarded as therapy.
I am not a medical professional and all medical related questions should be directed toward a medical professional.
If you are in crisis or experiencing a psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or go to the closest hospital.
