SCOTT EATON, MFT
YOUR RIGHTS AS A CLIENT


CONFIDENTIALITY
All information between therapist and client is strictly confidential unless:

1) you authorize me to release information.
2) I am ordered by a court to release information;
3) you present a physical danger to yourself or others;
4) child or elder abuse is suspected.

In these latter two cases, I am required by law to inform potential victims and/or legal authorities so that protective measures can be taken.

From time to time, I may periodically discuss your situation with another therapist for the purpose of review or consultation. Such consultations are always on an anonymous basis; you will not be identified by name.

TRAINING & EXPERIENCE

You have the right to request and receive full information about my professional capabilities, including licensure, education, training, experience, professional association & membership, specialization, and limitations.


PARTICIPATION
You have the right and responsibility to participate in deciding the appropriateness of any particular way of working with you in order that you may further your own goals and growth. This includes the right to ask questions about your therapy and the right to withhold any information you choose not to reveal. You also always have the right to say "No" to any exercise I might suggest. If you consent to participate in the optional methods of touch in which I’ve been trained, you always have the right to stop or change any procedure at any time for any reason or to terminate your consent for such methods of touch.
