WEBSITE LEGAL DISCLAIMER
Welcome to kaitlynnelsontherapy.com where Kaitlyn Nelson, offers her services as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of California and also offers private yoga instruction and yoga/wellness workshops. This Disclaimer contains important information to share with you and for you to understand. Please be advised of the following:
The information contained on this website, including ideas, suggestions, techniques, methods, videos, resources, publications, recommendations and other materials, is educational in nature and is provided only as general information and is not medical or psychological advice.
Transmission of the information presented on this website is not intended to create and receipt does not constitute any professional relationship between Kaitlyn Nelson and the visitor and should not be relied upon as medical, psychological, or other professional advice of any kind or nature.
You understand that by viewing this website, you will be introduced to an integrative holistic body-centered approach to psychotherapy that incorporates both traditional and non-traditional methods. Some of the non-traditional methods offered included Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (MBCBT), yoga, and meditation ( the “Non-Traditional Methods”). Specifically, MBCBT is a modified form of cognitive therapy that incorporates mindfulness practices that include present moment awareness, meditation, and breathing exercises. In addition, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT Tapping) is offered which is considered an energy-based mind-body method based on the newly emerging field of Energy Psychology. EFT Tapping seeks to address imbalances within a person’s energy system, as well as the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions on the body. The prevailing premise of EFT Tapping is that the source of all challenging, stressful, and negative emotions and limiting beliefs is a disruption in the body’s energy system. It is believed that EFT Tapping helps clear these disruptions, thereby restoring the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies. EFT Tapping uses the ancient Chinese meridian system with a gentle tapping procedure which stimulates designated meridian end points on the face and upper body while saying specific phrases and focusing on issues of emotional intensity in order to release the intensity and reframe the issues. The theory of energy-based methods such as EFT Tapping is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies are important for physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and for fostering well-being.
Although the Non-Traditional Methods and EFT Tapping appear to have promising health benefits, and there is a growing amount of valid scientific research that EFT meets the criteria to be considered an evidenced-based method, they are considered outside of traditional Western approaches to health and wellness and have yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, the Non-Traditional Methods and EFT Tapping may be considered experimental and the extent of their effectiveness, as well as their risks and benefits, are not fully known. The Non-Traditional Methods and EFT are considered to be an alternative or complementary approaches.
You understand that in addition to offering psychotherapy services in California as an LCSW, Kaitlyn Nelson also offers private yoga instruction and yoga/wellness workshops. Please be advised that these services are separate from and not part of her psychotherapy practice and they are not licensed health care services. Therefore, if you participate either in private yoga instruction or any of her workshops, you understand that Kaitlyn Nelson is only offering those services as a Registered Yoga Instructor.
