Social media can be a way for you to learn about what I do, my philosophy, and about what sort of therapist I might be. But once you become a client of mine, things change. The relationship you have with a therapist is unique. Therapists cannot be friends or business partners, or have a social or sexual relationship with you.
During the time you are a client mine, you can expect most of the services offered during your scheduled visits. Should you have an urgent need, you can leave a message for me and I will get back to you when I can. You should not expect emergency help from me. Emergency services are available here. If you have an urgent need, contact me by phone at (763)600-7609, or email me at davemsw[at]protonmail[dot]com. Do not leave confidential information on a voicemail at my phone number because it is not private.
While you are a client of mine, you may still follow me on social media. But if you send me unsecured email, call me for a non-urgent matter, send an @replies or direct message on Twitter, comment or direct message me on Facebook, write a blog comment or contact me via some other insecure and/or public means, you may be ignored and/or deleted to protect your confidentiality and preserve the integrity of the therapeutic relationship
Now that you know my social media policy, you may follow me:
