Confidentiality is key to our relationship. State law and professional ethics protect the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission. What you discuss in session will not be shared with anyone with the exception of those you request or authorize. This is called “Informed Consent”. If we decide information should be shared (such as with a medical or legal provider, or a school or a family member) I will ask you to sign a copy of a release prior to contact, and I will request a copy of a release from others before I communicate with them about you.
