Confidentiality & Privacy Policy

 

CONFIDENTIALITY:

All information disclosed within sessions and the written
records pertaining to those sessions are confidential and may not be revealed to anyone
without your written permission, except where disclosure is required by law.

When Disclosure Is Required By Law: Some of the circumstances where disclosure
is required by the law are: where there is a reasonable suspicion of child, dependent or
elder abuse or neglect; where a client presents a danger to self, to others, to property, or
is gravely disabled or when client’s family members communicate to Regina Prosi-Ignon,
LMFT that the client presents a danger to others.

When Disclosure May Be Required: Disclosure may be required pursuant to a legal
proceeding by or against you. If you place your mental status at issue in litigation
initiated by you, the defendant may have the right to obtain the psychotherapy records
and/or testimony by Regina Prosi-Ignon, LMFT. In couple and family therapy, or
when different family members are seen individually, even over a period of time,
confidentiality and privilege do not apply between the couple or among family members,
unless otherwise agreed upon. Regina Prosi-Ignon, LMFT will use her clinical judgment
when revealing such information and she will not release records to any outside party
unless she is authorized to do so by all adult family members who were part of the
treatment.
