Will my sessions be confidential?
Your sessions with your provider are confidential, with some exceptions. Providers within the practice consult with each other so they provide the best care for you. Any identifying information is not shared with providers consulting with each other regarding your care. Some of our providers provide clinical services under supervision and regularly speak with their supervisor about their client sessions. Otherwise, in certain situations mental health providers are required by law to break your confidentiality. The three situations include the following: if we learn of any potential child or elder abuse from you, we determine that you are at risk of harming yourself or someone else, or we receive a court order requesting your medical records.
