The law protects the relationships between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions include:
  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse. I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening seriously 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 insuring 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.
