Privacy and Confidentiality
Because therapy can be highly sensitive, your privacy and confidentiality is of utmost importance. I take it very seriously. Therapy sessions are always kept completely confidential and no information about you will ever be shared with anyone without your request. In rare cases an exception may be made as required by law or in the case of an emergency. In general, those exceptions include
- Medical emergencies, in which I would disclose your name to emergency personnel should you become ill or injured,
- Suspected child, elder or handicapped person abuse,
- Threats of direct harm to an identifiable victim,
- In cases where a court order requires disclosure.
