Confidentiality

Information shared in counseling is confidential and cannot be disclosed to any party outside the center without the client's prior written consent.

Confidentiality may be broken only:

(a) if such disclosure is necessary to protect the client or someone else from imminent danger;
(b) in cases of apparent ongoing child abuse;
(c) in those rare instances when courts subpoena counseling records.

More information on this subject can be found on this website under the section  Students.
