NO ESTABLISHED THERAPEUTIC RELATIONSHIP DISCLAIMER

 

It is understood that engaging with Iowa Family Counseling via the website, blog, or social media accounts does not indicate the established therapeutic relationship with Iowa Family Counseling. 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 its therapists or staff via social media or email does not indicate that a therapeutic relationship has been established. Additionally, being placed on the Iowa Family Counseling waitlist for services, 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.

 

If you are in need or interested in taking part in direct therapeutic services, please contact your insurance provider’s customer service for assistance. You may also visit https://www.psychologytoday.com/us to “Find a Therapist” in your area.​

SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY DISCLAIMER

The content on Iowa Family Counseling's website, blog, and social media are for marketing, advocating, and educational purposes only. Iowa Family Counseling, LLC or any of its associated counselors' social media pages, blogs, or websites are not psychotherapy, a replacement for psychotherapy services. Reading, viewing, or otherwise engaging with the online presences of Iowa Family Counseling does not constitute having a therapeutic relationship or serve as a replacement for therapy services, medical care, or mental health care. Iowa Family Counseling's social media presence is not a request for a rating, endorsement, or request from previous or current clients. No social media content or posts should be considered professional advice, as this information is for educational purposes only.

 

Clients, past and current, have the choice to like, follow, comment, re-post, direct message, and engage on social media with counselors, but this should be done at their own risk and with the understanding that this is a risk to their privacy and confidentiality. Commenting and messaging between session times are not confidential or encouraged, as they are not appropriate means for addressing crisis, questions, or concerns with your therapist. Please schedule an official session with your therapist to discuss any treatment questions or concerns. In order to honor professional boundaries and not engage in dual-relationship, previous and current clients will not be followed or friended on social media by counselors on all social media platforms.
