Privacy and Confidentiality

I understand that in order to feel comfortable, you need to know that your confidence will be protected. There are a few instances, mostly concerning your safety or the safety of others, where confidentiality cannot be maintained. Those circumstances aside, I protect your confidentiality to ensure a safe therapeutic environment.

Limitations to Confidentiality

  • I will not release your name, information about you or your family without your consent, keeping in mind the following exceptions:
  • Should you indicate that you have the intention of hurting yourself or someone else, I am required to intervene in order to keep all individuals safe
  • Should I be subpoenaed to court for any reason, my files may be a part of the legal proceeding

I invite you to call me for more details on this matter.
