Your privacy is important to me, and you can trust that our sessions, as well as any of your personal information, is always held in the strictest of confidence. Additionally, anything you transmit over this website is highly secure, and stored data is HIPAA-compliant.
Confidential information disclosed in private therapy sessions is legally protected. However, there are some exceptions to this, including
- Suspected child or elder abuse
- When a client presents a serious danger of violence toward himself or herself or another person
In these cases I am legally required to do everything under the law to get help for abused child/elder or a person who is a risk to himself/herself. I also have a legal duty to do my best to warn any person against whom one of my clients makes a direct threat of bodily harm.
