The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychologist. Except in limited situations, I will never disclose information without your specific written permission.
For your protection and the protection of others, the law requires disclosure of limited information in the following circumstances:
- In the event of child or elder abuse;
- When someone is threatened with serious bodily harm;
- When a client is in imminent danger of self harm;
- In the event of a court order.
If these situations arise, I work with clients to assure that any required disclosure results in the most positive outcome possible for all involved.
