Is therapy confidential?
I am ethically and legally constrained not even to acknowledge that you are my client unless you give me written permission. You may say anything, with confidence that I will not repeat it, EXCEPT that the law requires me to report the following potential dangers:
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. I am required to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person. I am required to notify police.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to work with the person to ensure their safety. However, if an individual does not cooperate, additional measures may need to be taken.
What forms should I bring to my first appointment?
All forms can be completed online. You will be given a link to fill out all forms electronically.
