Your privacy is important to us, and you can trust that our sessions, as well as any of your personal information, is always held in the strictest of confidence. I have made arrangements for HIPAA compliant file sharing along with measures taken to ensure compliance of record keeping to maintain privacy and discretion that you deserve with your behavioral health records. Privacy in unsecured settings requested by client such as sessions held in places other than an office has risks.
Confidential information disclosed in private therapy sessions is legally protected. However, there are some exceptions to this, including instances of suspected child or elder abuse, or when a client presents a serious danger of violence toward himself or herself or another person. If you’d like to learn more about our ethical standards and privileged communication exceptions, our office can provide additional information.
