This blog contains the reflections of one person, intended to inspire thought and dialogue among mental health professionals about issues related to clinical practice. It is not intended to serve as mental health advice, let alone assessment, diagnosis, or treatment, and does not constitute a therapeutic relationship.

This (or any) blog should not be considered a substitute for seeking appropriate in-person medical or mental health treatment from a licensed clinician. The author assumes no responsibility for any circumstances arising out of the use, misuse, interpretation or application of any information supplied on this site. Always consult with your doctor for appropriate examinations, treatment, testing, and care recommendations. Do not rely on information on this site as a tool for self-diagnosis.

Clinical material never refers to specific clients, but to an amalgamation of numerous clinical encounters, so there is no possibility of identifying information.
