All meetings are strictly confidential.
Counselors have a professional obligation to respect the confidentiality of information that surfaces within the counseling process. They will reveal information to others only if it is with your written permission or in response to a valid legal subpoena.
There are some exceptions to this rule that morally and legally require counselors to reveal confidential information. The counselors must reveal to others if:
- You are a clear danger to yourself.
- You reveal an intention to physically injure a third party.
- You reveal acts of child abuse.
If you do not fully understand this statement, please ask your counselor for clarification.
