Confidentiality

 All of the information shared is kept confidential unless a written release is approved and signed by you. Certain legal limits on confidentiality do exist and do not need a release from you:

1. If there is convincing evidence that you are in immediate danger to yourself or others. Legal action may be taken for your own protection and that of others.

2. If you are involved in a medical emergency.

3. Incidents of child or elder abuse, including physical, sexual, or neglect must be reported by me to the necessary agencies.

 A court of law may subpoena information and may order release of information.
