Privacy Policy

Confidentiality

Confidentiality is maintained as a part of the psychotherapy process in accordance with the ethical standards set forth by my profession. Exceptions are made to this policy if there is a danger to yourself or someone else, or if there is involvement with terrorist activity. In cases other than terrorism, I would speak with you first before taking action.

Sometimes it can be helpful for me to consult another professional about a case. The client’s identity is never discussed in these instances, only the issue at hand. Any consultant conferred with would also be legally bound to keep all information confidential.

Also, I often use clinical examples of transformation from my client work in published articles and presentations.  I go to great lengths to disguise identifying features of clients by changing names, gender, and/or profession when I present.  If, for any reason at all, despite these changes you would be uncomfortable having your experiences shared anonymously, then they will not be.
