People have many different motivations for coming to therapy. Some may be going through a major life transition (unemployment, divorce, new job, etc.), or are not handling stressful circumstances well. Some people need assistance managing a range of other issues such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, relationship problems, spiritual conflicts and creative blocks. Therapy can help provide the needed encouragement and help with skills to get them through these periods. Others may be at a point where they are ready to learn more about themselves or want to be more effective with their goals in life. In short, people seeking psychotherapy are ready to meet the challenges in their lives and ready to make changes in their lives.
Confidentiality is one of the most important components between a client and psychotherapist. 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 the law requires disclosure. Exceptions include:
- Where there is reasonable suspicion of child or elder abuse or neglect
- Where a client presents a danger to him/herself or to another person
- A client is gravely disabled
Disclosure of confidential information may be required by your health insurance carrier for HMO/PPO/ MCO/EAP in order to process your claims. Only the minimum necessary information will be provided to your insurance as permitted by law. This information is called the Protected Health Information (PHI) as determined by the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
