Your confidentiality is important! 

For detailed information, please be sure to review intake documents, which include: Notice of Privacy Policies, Informed Consent, and Practice Policies. 

What you disclose in therapy is protected, by law, and will remain confidential without need of written permission with certain exceptions: 

  • If you are a danger to yourself, or someone else.

  • There is suspected child abuse.

When working with adolescents, I will not share the minor's information disclosed in session, unless the above exceptions apply. If there is something I believe would help the minor, I encourage them to share. If they are not able, or ready to do so, I ask for their permission to speak to the parent about details. Updates are given to parents, but this is done broadly in regard to homework with a brief description about what the therapist provided in session.

When working with couples or families, information is not given to the partner or family member about what the initial client has shared in their individual therapy. 


You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical/mental health care will cost under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are  not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

     •  You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total  expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes  related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. 

     • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item.
You can also ask your healthcare provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule service. 

     • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
