Material revealed in counseling will remain strictly confidential except for material shared with fellow mental health professionals in order to pride optimum service and under the following circumstances in accordance with state law: 1) The client signs a written release of information indicating informed consent of such release, 2) The client expresses intent to harm him/herself or someone else, 3) There is a reasonable suspicion of abuse/neglect against a minor child, elderly person (60 or older), or a dependent adult, or 4) A court order is received directing the disclosure of information.

In the event of marriage or family counseling, material obtained from an adult client individually may be shared with the client's spouse or other family members only with the client's written permission. Any material obtained from a minor client may be shared with the client's parent or guardian.
You, the client, are a full partner in counseling. Your honesty and effort is essential to success. If as we work together you have suggestions or concerns about your counseling, it is further expected of you to share these with your counselor so that we can make the necessary adjustments. If it develops that you would be better served by another mental health provider, the counselor will help you with the referral process. If you are currently receiving services from another mental health professional, we expect you to inform the counselor of this and grant permission to share information with this professional so that we may coordinate our services to you.
Physical health can be an important factor in the emotional well-being of an individual. If you have not had a physical examination in the last year, it is recommended that you do so and to list any medications that you are now taking.
Potential Counseling Risk:
The client should be aware that counseling poses potential risks. In the course of working together additional problems may surface of which the client was not initially aware. If this occurs, the client should feel free to share these new concerns.
