I take my responsibility to protect your privacy and confidentiality very seriously and do everything in my power to safeguard your interactions with me, whether in person or online.
Our appointments are confidential.
This means I don’t talk to anyone about what we talk about without your permission. The exceptions to this are a court-ordered release of your clinical file, suspected child abuse, or if I think you or someone else are in immediate danger of harm.
It is important to remember that there limits to privacy online; while all effort is put into maintaining confidentiality, I can not fully guarantee that online messages, emails, texts, and other forms of technology-enabled communication will remain entirely secure.
Technology-enabled communication (such as emails, voicemail messages, or Skype conversations) can be subject to computer system errors, human error, and network errors that may result in messages going astray accidentally.
If you communicate confidential or private information via technology-enabled methods, I will assume that you have made an informed decision and agree to take the risks inherent with such communication.
