Specialties Posting a review of my services is your right as a client and it is entirely up to you to decide whether you wish to write a review. But I gently discourage clients from posting reviews of my practice for the reasons below. 1. The American Counseling Association's Ethics Code states that it is unethical for counselors to solicit testimonials. Since you may decide to return to therapy with me at a later date, I do not request testimonials from people who have ended therapy with me. 2. Unlike other business owners who may respond to their Yelp reviews, as a counselor, I must provide confidentiality to my clients. This means I am restricted from responding in any way that acknowledges whether someone has been in my care.
