All information you share with me, whether in sessions or over the telephone, becomes a part of your clinical records housed electronically with Therapy Notes. Record of our work together is kept in accordance with HIPPA guidelines. This record is accessible to you upon request.
All that you share with me will be kept confidential except in the following situations: I believe that your life (suicide) or someone else’s life is in danger (homicide); I suspect child or elder abuse or neglect; medical records are subpoenaed by court order; or I have your permission to release information in the form of a signed written consent. Please review the “Limits of Confidentiality” form NMlimits of psychotherapy
I will also review cases periodically with colleagues for supervision or consultation. These colleagues are also bound by confidentiality laws and a professional code of ethics.
