What is your confidentiality policy?

What you discuss during your therapy session is kept confidential. No contents of the therapy sessions, whether verbal or written may be shared with another party without your written consent or the written consent of your legal guardian.

The following is a list of exceptions to the confidentiality policy:

  • Under subpoena from a court of law
  • Duty to Warn and Protect – If you disclose, or we find out there is a risk to harm yourself, the therapist must attempt to notify your family and notify legal authorities. In addition, if you disclose, or we find out there is a risk for you to harm another person, the therapist is required to warn the possible victim and notify legal authorities.
  • Abuse of Children and Vulnerable Adults – If you disclose, or it is suspected, that there is abuse or harmful neglect of children or vulnerable adults (i.e. the elderly, disabled/incompetent), the therapist must report this information to the appropriate agency and/or legal authorities.
