YOUR CONFIDENTIALITY

Confidentiality & Privacy Policy:

 

The law strictly protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

 

Exceptions include:

 

  • I am required by law to report suspected abuse of a minor, dependent adult, or elder over the age of 65 years;
  •  
  • If a client threatens serious bodily harm to an identifiable person, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim;
  •  
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I may take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.

  • If a person in my care, after January 1, 2015, knowingly develops, duplicates, prints, downloads, streams, accesses through any electronic or digital media, or exchanges, a film, photograph, or video, in which a child is engaged in an act of obscene sexual conduct, and divulges that information, I am mandated to report to the proper authorities for possible further investigation.
