Except as required by law, information revealed during counseling and psychological testing will be kept strictly confidential by your counselor and will not be revealed to any other person or agency without your written permission.
No audio or video recordings will be made without your written consent. Your therapist may consult with other staff members or other counseling professionals regarding the best course of your treatment. In a very small number of situations, therapists are legally required to reveal information obtained during counseling to other persons or agencies without your permission. If any information is given out under these circumstances, your therapist will let you know of his or her actions. For example, if you threaten grave bodily harm or death to yourself or another person or destruction of property, your counselor is required to act in a responsible manner to inform or protect the intended victim.
If a court of law issues a legitimate request, your counselor is required to provide the information specifically described in the order. If you are court ordered for counseling or testing, the results of the treatment or tests ordered must be revealed to the court. If there is a child abuse, physical and/or sexual, your therapist is required to act responsibly.
