The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
- 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.
SKYPE for Therapy Services
If you are choosing to use SKYPE as a means for therapy, all of the above guidelines remain the same; however we can not guarantee that the SKYPE connection is 100% secure. We are not responsible for parties on the clients end that may overhear the session, nor are we responsible for any interference beyond our control due to any breech in the technology used for therapy.
