Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, 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 I believe a client intends to harm him/herself, I will make every effort to enlist
    their cooperation in ensuring their safety. Without their cooperation, I will take
    further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order
    to ensure their safety.
