Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

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

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse, dependent adult or elder abuse, and witness to violence, for which 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
