Confidential information between a therapist and client are protected by law. Yet, therapists are mandated reporters some of the exceptions are listed below:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent 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 ensuring 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.
We value your privacy.
To ensure your confidentiality please do not give any private information regarding your mental or physical health, electronically. .
