Confidentiality and Privacy Policy

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

Exceptions include:

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

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

  • If a client intends to harm him or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety.  If necessary I will take further measures without their permission, that are provided to me by law, in order to ensure their safety.
