Confidentiality and Privacy
Protecting your privacy is very important to me and the content of our sessions is kept under strict
Confidentiality. Based on state and federal laws the exceptions to confidentiality are listed below.
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, 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, by law, I will take further
measures without their permission in order to ensure his or her safety.
