Our conversations and my records are treated with confidentiality and are protected by state law and professional ethics. I am required to complete four hours of ethics training every two years.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Certified Group Psychotherapist and a member in good standing of my professional organizations.
Circumstances in which I cannot guarantee confidentiality are 1) when I believe that you intend to harm yourself or another person, 2) when I believe that a child or other dependent person has been or will be neglected, 3) when I elect to consult with another professional in the interests of your treatment; in that case your name and other identifying information will not be shared. Confidentiality can be overridden by court order.
