Web Page, Client Confidentiality and Blog Posts

We take client confidentiality very seriously. Having a safe place to share hurts and deep secrets of the heart is vital to the healing process of counseling.

Occasionally in our blog posts we will describe life situations for illustrative purposes. It is normal to see oneself in some of these examples. It is also normal to suspect that the example is drawn from the reader’s actual life experiences (if the reader is a past or present client). However, we never disclose client details on our blog. Breaking client confidentiality in such a way would likely be very damaging to the client-counselor relationship. Additionally, it would be a violation of the Code of Ethics , which we subscribe to.

It is normal for someone to believe that no one has (or very few have) experienced some of the negative things that they have. While the details (i.e., the who, what, when, where) of each person’s life experiences often are fairly unique to them, the underlying emotional and psychological experiences are common to most everyone. We all have to grapple with a variety of emotional experiences: love and hate, joy and sorrow, fear and safety, shame and acceptance. Thus, if you are seeing yourself in some of our blog posts, please be assured that we are not actually writing about you in particular, but rather are writing about emotional and relational experiences that are common to many people.

If you are a past or present client and you have any concerns whatsoever regarding a possible breach of your confidentiality we urge to you to speak directly with your counselor about it. The text on this web page is insufficient to address such an important and sensitive issue. Such topics are best addressed face-to-face with your counselor where they can help you process what you are experiencing.

E-mail Confidentiality

Similar to faxing, e-mail is an inherently insecure communication method. Though our e-mail account is password protected and the e-mails received are only read by the Living Waters counselors, we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of e-mails as they travel between our e-mail account and the e-mail account of a client or potential client. E-mails are transmitted through the internet in an unencrypted format—what is called “plain text”—and thus can be intercepted by anyone making an effort to do so. Please keep these realities in mind if you decide to engage in e-mail communications with us. In order to protect your privacy we recommend that you limit the content of your e-mails to logistical questions. Particulars of your current counseling needs are best discussed via telephone or in person.

Website Privacy Policy

We do not collect any personal information from users browsing the Tabernacle of Faith Christian Center web site. The information that we do collect does not identify individual users. This includes data such as: Internet Protocol (IP) address, web browser, operating system, Internet Service Provider (ISP), connection speed, referring/exit pages, pages visited, and date/time stamps. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the website, analyze website usage, and gather broad demographic information. The software which we use to collect and analyze this data does not collect or link to personally identifiable information; all data is analyzed in aggregate.

No Warranties On Website Content

Even though we hope that our content (including content that we have not written, but that we may reference or link to) will be generally helpful we do not warranty it in any way. We do not take any responsibility for any outcomes that may result from any decisions, actions, or inactions that an individual may take as a result of reading the content on this site. All content, past and present, is provided on an “As Is” basis, and Tabernacle of Faith Christian Center, makes no warranties, expressed or implied, and disclaims any implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement.

Tabernacle of Faith Christian Center, shall not be liable under any circumstances for any direct, indirect or other damages that might occur in connection with your reading the content of this website. By reading our website you agree to indemnify, defend and hold Tabernacle of Faith Christian Center, its Therapist; counselors, board officers, employees, affiliates and other representatives harmless against any and all claims, damages, losses, etc. that you might incur as a result of browsing this website.

Note that if you are a client the terms set forth in this document are distinct from those which govern your counseling relationship. The client-counselor relationship is governed by separate terms which put forth client rights and responsibilities particular to that relationship. The terms of the client-counselor relationship and terms set forth on this web page are not meant to effect or change each other; each is meant to be independent of the other.

External Links

We will occasionally link to external sites (e.g., sites which have an address different from Tabernacle of Faith Christian Center, Inc.). External links are never endorsements in and of themselves. If we endorse or recommend an individual, organization or resource we will articulate that clearly. Additionally, we have no control over and take no responsibility for the content of other sites. Some sites change their content frequently. Some sites change hands (though we try to avoid linking to sites that we anticipate will have a short lifespan) and dramatically change content. Sites can even be hijacked, or hacked, and have content (usually offensive in nature) posted on them illegally by the intruders. The above sections on this page apply to external links (e.g., external link content is not a substitute for face-to-face counseling, we make no warranties regarding external link content, and we are not liable for external link content).
