Starting to transition back to in-person therapy? Continuing online but wondering about the impacts on you and your practice? Have you noticed yourself inviting some clients to in person and not others? What are the ethics of this?

What kind of social media messages should you be posting publicly? How do you interpret or document if a client adds a  or a  to you  to your text or post? What if you find out the other player in a multiplayer game is your client? What happens when your client Googles you and wants to talk about your past?
