Confidentiality

Contents of all therapy sessions including artwork are considered to be confidential. Confidentiality is an important part of the relationship between a client and therapist and it is protected by the law. Both verbal information and written records about a client cannot be disclosed without written permission of the client or the client’s legal guardian. New clients and caretakers will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement during the intake session.

Group confidentiality is important to maintain because it helps preserve the group’s sense of safety by keeping the personal conversations shared within the room in the group. Each member and caretakers will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement before joining a group.

Only scheduling information can be sent via email. All confidential information can be given to the therapist during the session, faxed to 888-248-7189, or talked about on the phone at 504-220-1483.

Due to the potential risk of harm to clients, psychotherapy notes and/or other records will only be released with a court order.
