Exceptions to Assurance of Confidentiality
There are three exceptions to our assurances of confidentiality:
Most United States courts have the power to subpoena our records and a therapist’s records if you are involved in a court case in which your relationship with us or the therapist is somehow relevant. Although this may be rare, if you have any questions, it is better to contact your lawyer prior to disclosing any information you may deem private.
If someone’s life is in danger, we will attempt to report it. This applies to potential cases of suicide or homicide.
