SOCIAL MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY
I do not maintain personal or professional social media accounts on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. I do not link with clients via LinkedIn for reasons of confidentiality. Please do not use SMS (mobile phone text messaging) to contact me. This is not a secure form of communication and engaging with me in this way could compromise your confidentiality. If you need to contact me between sessions the best way to do so is by phone. Alternatively, for quick administrative issues, such as confirming appointment times, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember that email is not completely secure as all emails are retained in the logs of your and my internet service providers. While it is unlikely that someone would be looking at these logs they are, in theory, available to be read by the system administrators of the service provider. Also, any emails exchanged between us become part of your legal record.
You may find my practice on sites such as Yelp, Bing,or other business listing sites. Some of these include forums in which users add reviews and ratings. I am not responsible for whether I am listed on these sites and I am not soliciting a review from you as my client. The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers prohibits social workers from soliciting testimonials. You are welcome to express yourself in any way you wish but due to confidentiality I cannot respond to any reviews on these sites whether it is positive or negative and I do not receive any comments directly and will likely not see them. If you do have concerns with your experience I always welcome your feedback.
