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 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.

Following
I publish a blog on my website and I post therapy news on Twitter. I have no expectation that you as a client will want to follow my blog or Twitter stream.

Business Review Sites
You may find my practice on sites such as Yelp, Healthgrade, or other places that list businesses. These listing are added without my knowledge.

I am fine with you expressing yourself in anyway you choose on these sites, but I would caution you regarding your confidentiality.
I would encourage you to discuss any concern with me directly as my main concern is your well being.

Thank you for reviewing my policies, if you have any questions please contact me at your convenience.
