Do you take insurance?
Right now, I do not accept insurance. Also, I would suggest checking to see what your mental health benefits are. Often times, the copay for services can be just as much as my sliding scale fee.
Does what we discuss in session remain confidential?
I believe that confidentiality is one of the most important and fundamental pieces of the therapeutic relationship. In our first session, we will review confidentiality as it is laid out in my practice policies.
However, state law and professional ethics require therapists to maintain confidentiality except for the following situations:
* Suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders to the authorities, including Child Protection and law enforcement, based on information provided by the client or collateral sources.
* If the therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threatened to harm another person
