This includes, but is not limited to the sharing of posts, commenting on blog or social media posts, and direct messaging via social media accounts.
Contacting Iowa Family Counseling and/or it's therapists or staff via social media or email does not indicate that a therapeutic relationship has been established.

A therapeutic relationship is only established by seeing an Iowa Family Counseling Therapist at the Iowa Family Counseling office, via a scheduled, secured teletherapy session, or at an established school-based setting. Prior to your initial session with a Therapist, appropriate consent forms and client information will need to be completed and signed. Iowa Family Counseling staff will provide the necessary forms.
