Hello good peoples. 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.
