Privacy & Policy

Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

The law protects the relationship between a client and a psychotherapist, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
All information in therapy sessions is confidential and can be disclosed only if permitted by the parent or the patient's parents.  Children have the legal right to confidentiality as of 14 years of age and also need to give written consent when coming to therapy.  Notice that a consent can be revoked at any time and has a time limit.
If you are using your insurance we will share routine information with your insurance company in order to be reimbursed.
Confidentiality has to be broken according to Pennsylvania state law if the client disclosed information in the session that points to suspected child abuse or imminent danger to the client ( suicide)  or another person (homocide, fire setting)

NOTICE: At the time of intake you will receive extensive office policies, and your copy of HPPA (privacy policies).  Anything you sign, will be explained to you if you so request. .
