What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Your Data Related to My Email List
Your Data Related to My Services, Workshops, or Courses
When you participate in my services, workshops, or courses, I may collect personal information via email in the form of intake and/or enrollment questionnaires to help me deliver my individual and group offerings. For example, I ask all new clients to complete an intake questionnaire where they reflect on their life and goals. Personal data shared in questionnaires are held in confidence. Questionnaires are not handled by this website. They are shared between us by email. If you prefer, you may share questionnaire reflections via regular mail instead of email.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
My contact form collects your name and email along with your message. This information is conveyed to me via email. None of this information is saved on the website. I do not automatically add you to my email list. I do not share this information with anyone else.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Embedded content from and links to other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. There also may be links to other websites.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
