The law protects the privacy of all communications between a client and a psychotherapist, and I can release information about our work to others only with your written permission.
There are some situations when I am legally obligated to take action to protect others from harm:
If I suspect past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders based on information provided by you or outside sources.
If the I believe you are in danger of harming yourself or you have threated to harm another person.
In the event of one of these exceptions, I will make every effort to discuss it with you fully before taking any action.
