PRIVACY POLICY

Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of the client and psychotherapist relationship.  Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust with topics that are usually not discussed anywhere but in the therapist's office. Sometimes, however, you may want your therapist to share information or give an update to someone on your healthcare team e.g. a primary care doctor or a psychiatrist.  By law, I cannot release this information without obtaining your written permission first.  Please let me know if you need some assistance in filling out a Release of Information form.

Please note that state law and professional ethics require therapists to maintain confidentiality, except in the following situations:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.

  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person or persons, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim(s).

  • If a client intends to harm him or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.

 

Please call or e-mail me with any questions you might have. I try to return all inquiries within 24 to 36 hours.
