All information between therapist and client is strictly confidential unless:
you authorize me to release information.
2) I am ordered by a court to release
3) you present a physical danger to yourself or others;
4) child or elder abuse is suspected.
these latter two cases, I am required by law to inform potential victims and/or
legal authorities so that protective measures can be taken.
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.
