Privacy & Policy

Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

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

Exceptions include:

  • If I have reason to suspect, on the basis of my professional judgement, that a child is or has been abused, I am required to report my suspicions to the authority or government agency vested to conduct child abuse investigations.  I am required to make such reports even if I do not see the child in my professional capacity.
  • I am mandated to report suspected child abuse if anyone aged 14 or older tells me that he or she committed child abuse, even if the victim is no longer in danger.
  • I am also mandated to report suspected child abuse if anyone tells me that he or she knows of any child who is currently being abused.
  • 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.
