What information do I collect?
It is a good idea to avoid sharing confidential information pertaining to the therapeutic process through email or text. Please be aware that all emails are retained in the logs of your and my Internet service providers. While it is unlikely that someone will be looking at these logs, they are, in theory, available to be read by the system administrator(s) of the Internet service provider. Remember that emails are not completely secure or confidential. You should also know that any emails, calls, or texts I receive from you, and any responses that I send to you, become a part of your legal record.
Once we have begun working together, I keep a file in which I collect private information, progress notes, and copies of our communications, for the purpose of continuity of care and responsible care.
How is the information used?
Any information you provide to me will be kept confidential, and is not used or disclosed for purposes other than those set out herein, nor is this information shared with third parties unless I have reasonable grounds to believe a minor or other vulnerable people are at risk, that you are in immediate danger of harm to yourself or others, or if my files are subpoenaed by court or the WCB. Any data that is logged through your use of this website is used by me to determine website usage statistics, such as page views and clicks, in order to improve and personalize my web site layout, content and services, and for the purpose of advertising and marketing.
