Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

Your sense of safety is essential. The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist; information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions:
• Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse; I am required by law to report this 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 himself 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.
