Will what I say be kept confidential?
The most important aspect of successful, helpful therapy is confidentiality. Confidentiality means that what is said in therapy, stays between the therapist and client (and a minor’s parents) only. Therapy is often the only place where individuals discuss particularly sensitive, private matters. Knowing that your information is kept private is crucial to being able to talk about these concerns. Center for Shared Insight is only able to disclose a client’s personal information, for example, to coordinate care with your physician or teacher, if a client provides written permission to do so.
State law and professional ethics require that Center for Shared Insight maintains confidentiality, except in the following cases:
- Suspected child, dependent adult, or elder adult abuse or neglect
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person(s)
- If a client intends to harm himself/herself
