Confidentiality and Privacy Policy

The law protects the relationship between a client and a counselor, and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.

Exceptions to the Confidentiality & Privacy Policy include:

Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which we are required by law to report to the appropriate authorities immediately.

If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, we must notify the police and inform the intended victim.

If a client intends to harm him or herself, we will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, we will take further measures without their permission that are provided to us by law in order to ensure their safety.

If a therapist at Wellness Counseling is subpoenaed along with their record, we must follow the order of the subpoena.
