Privacy & Policy

Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

The law protects the relationship between a client and a licensed clinician, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. There are some exceptions that may apply in cases of mediated and/or collaborative divorces, which will be reviewed in writing and at the first appointment.  There is a minimum 24 hour cancellation policy, or the cost of the full appointment will be charged.

In general, some exceptions to confidentiality include:

  • 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.
