Confidentiality

 

As a client in a therapeutic relationship, you have rights. Confidentiality is a cornerstone of a strong patient-doctor alliance, and you can expect complete privacy with few exceptions (listed below).  You will receive a written copy of both a disclosure agreement (i.e., Informed Consent), and the HIPPA Notice of Privacy Practices, and you will have an opportunity to any questions that you may have in your first appointment as well as subsequent sessions.  Should you wish for communication between me and another provider, or other professional, you must provide written permission allowing any release of confidential information.

There are Federal and State legal and ethical reporting requirements for Psychologists, and in these cases, confidentiality may be broken (details are enclosed in paperwork you will receive in your first meeting). Licensed Psychologists are mandated to report if a client is at risk for harming him/herself or someone else/others, and every attempt is made to keep all parties safe from harm.

Insurance

Client confidentiality is one of the most important elements of effective and ethical therapy.  Often clients prefer to maintain complete privacy.  Insurance companies require confidential information be provided, including diagnoses, courses of treatment, progress, and outcomes.  In order to preserve confidentiality, I do not accept insurance.  However, clients may request a bill or receipt of payment to submit to their insurance company for reimbursement (e.g. PPO - Out of Network)
