May you see in what you do the beauty of your soul.
~ John O’Donahue
DO YOU WANT TO BE APPROACHABLE WITHOUT BEING INAPPROPRIATE?
This is a common concern of clients I work with. As a therapist, we are taught to maintain strict ethics. It is our ethical responsibility not to claim to be an expert when we are not, to represent ourselves based upon our experience, and to maintain a level of advertising congruent with standards of our professions. I’m not a lawyer and I do not put a legal stamp of approval on your website, but I can assure you that after 15 years of holding ethical standards, my approach is grounded from this perspective.
DO YOU WANT TO PROVIDE A SAFE SPACE FOR TRAUMA CLIENTS?
Could a website be trigger proof? Not completely… but I try my best. You will see from my samples that I am not a fan of pop ups. I don’t like when I go to a website and a mailing lists pop up. I find that to be intrusive. I also don’t like websites where there are many different visuals in the same area. You will see that my designs are very horizontally based – meaning – that I try and keep a clean and calm focus while viewing different parts of a page.
Can I do pop ups? Of course. I can make the website look however you want it to look. I’m describing my ideal clients, which are therapists who are drawn to the same visuals I am. Just like in practice, you have certain psychotherapy clients who you could treat without any effort, because you share a similar language beyond words – a connection where your energy just fits.
