Can I request a particular therapist or type of therapist?
We do our best to match clients with therapists they will feel comfortable with, but there is no guarantee that we will be able to honor any particular request. It depends upon the availability of therapists and upon the availability of openings in their caseloads.
Are your services confidential?
Yes. Our ethical and legal obligations insofar as confidentiality is concerned are the same as those for any other mental health clinic or psychologist in private practice. We do not disclose any information about our clients or their identities without their written authorization to do so. There are, however, some legal and ethical limitations on our ability to maintain confidentiality in certain cases. We are, for example, legally or ethically obligated to break confidentiality if it is necessary in order to prevent clients from harming themselves or someone else. We also are legally obligated to respond to court orders and subpoenas as well as to report cases of child/elder abuse or neglect. Clients of the clinic are given written information concerning the limitations on confidentiality.
