Privacy and Confidentiality

Be assured, protecting your privacy and confidentiality is extremely important to me. This forms the foundation of building a relationship with my clients. 

For Individual therapy: 

Generally, I cannot speak to anyone about your treatment without your written authorization, which I provide. You have the choice to grant me this authorization and what information you'd like me to convey. In some cases, such as eating disorders, I may recommend a release of information for your nutritionist or PCP, but ultimately, it is still your decision. 

For Parent Consultations

My policy for parent consultations are identical to how I approach my individual therapy, regarding disclosing information; However, we will also discuss how privacy is handled in cases of divorce, a parent unable to attend a consultation, and any other situations that fit your situation. 

Limits to Confidentiality

There are a few situations in which I am legally and ethically obligated to break our confidentiality: 

  • If you are a danger to yourself or others

  • If you tell me about abuse by your or another person against a child, elderly, dependent or someone who is disabled. 

  • If I am subpoenaed and ordered by a judge to divulge confidential information, such has session content and records.

In the case that any of these situations arise, I will make every effort possible to update you about what is going on and what action, if any, is being taken.
