Is therapy confidential?
Confidentiality is dictated by legal and ethical concerns. I will not disclose any identifying information about you or your child to others unless I have your signed consent or in cases where I am legally required to do so. Legally, protected health information may be disclosed under the following circumstances: court order or other legally mandated requirement for disclosure of information; to obtain needed services for you or your child, such as in the case of an emergency need for hospitalization; clear risk of harm to self or others; suspected child abuse; or to obtain payment. The document Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is included on this website and further describes your rights under the law.
