Social media is an important aspect of modern communication and can play a valuable role in connecting people and sharing information. As a private practice, Affinity Counseling Connections PLLC recognizes the potential benefits and risks of social media. This policy outlines our guidelines for the use of social media by clients and staff of Affinity Counseling Connections PLLC.
Due to the importance of your confidentiality and the importance of minimizing dual relationships, Affinity Counseling Connections PLLC do not accept friend or contact requests from current or former clients on any social networking site (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc). We believe that adding clients as friends or contacts on these sites can compromise your confidentiality and our respective privacy. It may also blur the boundaries of our therapeutic relationship. If you have questions about this, please bring them up with your clinician to talk more about it.
- Contacting the Therapist: Affinity Counseling Connections PLLC encourage their clients to avoid the use of social media when attempting to contact their therapist for therapy-related matters. If a client needs to reach their therapist, they should use the contact page provided on this website or method shared by therapist.
By following these guideline Affinity Counseling Connections PLLC can ensure that social media remains a tool for use while also respecting ethical boundaries and maintaining confidentiality.
