Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

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

Exceptions include:  

  • Suspected child abuse or dependant 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, 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 insuring 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.
