Privacy Policy

Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

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

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependant 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, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.

I will always work to discuss the need to share information before I share it unless it is unavoidable. Clients who use insurance may also have some exemptions to confidentiality. Some insurance companies ask therapists for progress reports to authorize further sessions. Billing insurance requires me to list a diagnosis.
