Editorial Content

Drgaato.com was created to provide information about my clinical practice coincident with material describing general mental health concerns and wellness.  It is intended for your personal and non-commercial use only.  The information offered is for personal education, edification, information and entertainment.

My primary goal with Drgaato.com is to provide users with relevant, quality information and content.  I respect the intelligence of my readers and believe that with the appropriate tools and resources they will make informed decisions in their best interests.

While I make every reasonable effort to ensure that all posted information is accurate at the time of posting, I am not able to guarantee its reliability or accuracy.  Moreover, many ideas and suggestions on this site are derivations, interpretations or conjecture based on research or just hypotheses founded on what researchers have discovered so far.  As such, not all content on the site is evidence-based to the same degree.  With that noted, I will provide results from relevant research studies whenever I feel that it is applicable.

No Professional Advice

This site does not offer online psychotherapy or psychological services.  It is not intended as a substitute for face-to-face professional psychological therapy or advice.

Any programs or programs that may be offered are intended for educational use only.  Do not substitute any products or programs that you may access here for any planned or ongoing medical or psychological care.  All products/programs should never be listened to while driving or operating heavy machinery.

Disclaimer of Warranties & Liability

In conjunction with this site, it is your responsibility to evaluate the information and results from tools provided preferably in conjunction with your mental health provider(s).

If you are a mental health provider, you must exercise your professional judgment in evaluating any information contained herein, especially before undertaking any treatment based upon it.

Obligation of Users to Check Credentials

The term “mental health provider” includes psychologists, psychotherapists, counselors, nurse practitioners, social workers and is not limited to these professions.  I do not endorse any mental health professional mentioned or listed on this site and will not be liable for damages to anyone as a result of using the services of any health care practitioner accessed through Drgaato.com.

Copyright

Caution

Although we are increasingly learning more about the brain and how it works, the interpretations and implications of those facts (i.e., the theory) are not yet set in stone.  As such, I invite you to view them as best-guess hypotheses given current research discoveries.  In other words, not all of the content on Drgaato.com has been researched or evidenced to the same degree as cutting-edge neuroscience although references to current findings will continue to be cited.

Links to Other Websites

I have not reviewed all the sites that Drgaato.com may link to and am not responsible for the content on these sites.  Although I make every effort  to include only those sites that reflect the same vision and/or spirit offered through Drgaato.com I caution you to visit them at your own discretion.
