Federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act protects the relationship between an adult client and a therapist, and information may not be disclosed without written permission.  As a mandated reporter, I am required by law to disclose confidential information under the following circumstances:

  • Suspected or actual abuse toward a child, elderly adult, or vulnerable adult.
  • Threats to harm or kill oneself.  When a client reports suicidal intent, I will make every effort to ensure her or his safety.
  • Threats to harm or kill another person.  When a client threatens serious bodily harm to another person, I am required by law to inform the intended victim.
  • Misuse or abuse of non-medical drugs used during pregnancy.
