Privacy & Policy
What is discussed during treatment will be kept strictly confidential within legal boundaries, and no information will be divulged without your written consent.
Some information cannot be held confidential by law, such as information regarding child abuse, and will be reported to the designated authorities. If I am subpoenaed by a court of law, information may be divulged. In the case of divorced parents, generally both parents have access to information about their child. Please consult your divorce decree/agreement. Threats of danger to self or others can also be divulged to appropriate others.
Should you use third party providers (insurance), please be informed that oftentimes these companies require a diagnosis, or other information as well. This information will be granted as a matter of course should you decide to utilize their services.
Exceptions to confidentiality are prescribed by the licensing board in the State of Texas and include but are not limited to the following situations: abuse or neglect of minors; abuse, neglect, or exploitation of the elderly; a therapist’s duty to warn due to danger, physically or emotionally to the client, therapist or another person; a subpoena or court order; fee disputes between the therapist and the client; or the filing of a complaint with the licensing board.
If you have any questions regarding confidentiality, you should bring them to my attention.
