Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

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

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client is at "imminent risk" of harm to herself or himself , I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take necessary measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.

 

IN DIVORCE WORK:

Because the substance of the work in mediation/ collaboration is a settlement negotiation process, the information, process, content, and product of any negotiations is inadmissible in court in a litigation proceeding in the event that a settlement was not concluded.  In Collaborative divorce, the collaborative professionals who are not attorneys are protected by client privilege under the Illinois Collaborative Law Act.
