A word about confidentiality.
In the past, I agreed, at their request, not to disclose the names of most of my clients. I'm not going to do that any more ... because secrecy is not in your best interest, or mine. If I work with you, I'm going to bandy your name about in the most positive ways because it benefits both of us. If you do not want anyone - your family, friends, partners, neighbors, professional colleagues, clients, patients, staff - to know that your intention is to improve the quality and professional standards of your and their lives, then we are likely not a good match. But be careful... your professional colleagues may want to work with me, if you don't.

What I am careful about is
not revealing confidential aspects of your practice, including your personal goals and future intentions. In some communities, gossip and rumor are rampant. That's not my style: I've been anti-gossip for years. I don't repeat anything without permission from your lips (or pen).

Just to be careful, I don't drink so I won't get sloppy and reveal what I shouldn't, and I'm not a party-goer so the chances of my even being among people who want me to "give up the goods" is highly remote. Do you think I'd want to lose a fabulous client just to appear important at a party? Uh, no!

And I don't have a partner or staff who could become publicly talkative; and I learned years ago, that sharing any information about myself with my family members would only end in disaster. So I don't, and they don't even look at my web site.
