Terms and Conditions
This page represents a legal document and is the Terms of Service and Use Agreement (“Agreement”) for our website, WellnessProvidersNetwork.com ( as known “Wellness Providers Network”), as owned and operated by Wellness Providers Network LLC (WPN LLC). It was last updated on June 30th 2018.
By using Wellness Providers Networks, you agree to fully comply with and be bound by the following Agreement. Please review the following terms carefully.
Wellness Providers Networks is an interactive, online service consisting of information services and content provided by members, affiliates and other third parties. “User” means each person who accesses Wellness Providers Networks for access to and use of information OR establish a connection (“Account”) for use of its services.
(A) Wellness Providers Networks is not intended to be a substitute for professional advice, diagnosis, treatment, medical treatment, psychotherapy, counseling, or mental health services. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding any mental health symptom or medical condition. Never disregard professional advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on Wellness Providers Networks.
(B) Wellness Providers Networks does not recommend or endorse any specific tests, products, procedures, opinions, or other information that may be mentioned on Wellness Providers Networks. Reliance on any information provided by Wellness Providers Networks and its members, employees, others appearing on Wellness Providers Networks at its invitation, or other visitors to Wellness Providers Networks is solely at your own risk.
The Wellness Providers Network is an internet service for those interested in working with Alternative Therapy providers (therapists, counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, etc.).
(D) Wellness Providers Networks cannot and does not provide any warranties related to the information contained in or resulting services from any of the mental health care providers (therapists, counselors, psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and other health providers) listed on Wellness Providers Networks. Information accessed through Wellness Providers Networks is provided “AS IS” and without any warranty, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness.
(E) WPN LLC does not arbitrate or warrant the competence of any health provider listed on Wellness Providers Networks. Wellness Providers Network LLC does not warrant that the health providers listed on Wellness Providers Networks are currently or properly licensed, though therapists marked “Verified” are officially certified and verified through due-diligence. Despite that, under no circumstances should Wellness Providers Networks be used to verify the credentials of mental health care providers. For safety’s sake, please contact your State Professional Licensing Board to verify the licensure of a provider. Use of Wellness Providers Networks to locate, contact, or receive services from an Account is wholly voluntary. In no event shall WPN LLC be liable for damages to any User of Wellness Providers Networks.
(F) When Users and Accounts of Wellness Providers Networks who submit questions and posts via a form on Wellness Providers Networks there is an implicit acknowledgement that their questions may be published on Wellness Providers Networks and made public at the discretion of Wellness Providers Network LLC. By submitting content through the form, Users and Accounts give their consent to publish the submitted content, understanding that it is their responsibility to exclude any identify information from their submission, even though WPN LLC will make every effort to remove identifying information. Clients who submit questions understand that not all submissions will be responded to and, those that are, generally take one to two weeks to publish.
(G) The “Verified” seal found on the profile page of some therapists listed on Wellness Providers Networks, indicates that a particular therapist, if he or she is in a jurisdiction that requires licensure in order to practice, has had their state license confirmed as active with their State or National Licensing Board. In jurisdictions which do not require licensure in order to practice, the Credential Verification Seal indicates that educational requirements have been met.
Credential Verification is voluntary, meaning that a member without the Credential Verification Seal is not necessarily unlicensed. The Credential Verification Seal does not indicate that the therapist is licensed in every state, province, or country they are practicing in; instead it signifies that the therapist has an active license in the state in which their license was granted. All therapists in the Wellness Providers Network with the Verified Credential Seal are asked to reapply for verification annually in September. If a therapist in the Wellness Providers Network does not re-apply by the deadline or if their license cannot be confirmed, the Credential Verification Seal is removed.
Because of the potential for human error, please be aware that the Credential Verification Seal cannot serve as a guaranteed indication that a particular therapist listed is currently or properly licensed. Thus, Wellness Providers Networks does not warrant that the providers listed on Wellness Providers Networks are currently or properly licensed. Under no circumstances should Wellness Providers Networks be used to verify the credentials of mental health care providers.
(H) Wellness Providers Networks shall have the right at any time to change or discontinue any aspect of their profile, including, but not limited to, content, hours of availability and writing.
(I) Clients who contact Wellness Providers Networks Accounts and Users through the Wellness Providers Networks internal email system will receive an automatic confirmation email when WPN LLC forwards Users’ email to the member.
(J) Users who contact an Wellness Providers Networks Account through the internal email system will automatically be added to our subscriber database and will be sent monthly updates on helpful resources related to therapy and treatment. Users’ and Accounts’ privacy will be respected and contact information (email address, name, etc.) will not be shared with anyone other than the therapist Account contacts.
(K) Accounts who register for Wellness Providers Network Membership and are approved to advertise in the Wellness Providers Network acknowledge the existence of the terms, which is applicable to all therapist member Accounts, by virtue of registering for Wellness Providers Network membership, which includes a required check-box agreement, to all of the conditions contained in the terms.

By using Wellness Providers Network, Client agrees to comply with all of the terms and conditions hereof.
