Your privacy and confidentiality are of utmost importance to me. I treat everything you discuss with respect and consideration for your privacy. Under no circumstances will I share information about you without your permission. In the event that you want me to share some information about you with another professional, or with an institution (for example, your insurance company), I will request a written authorization from you. It is in a safe and comfortable environment that you can share important things about your background, difficult feelings and thoughts. Confidentiality of these disclosures is an important foundation of the treatment I provide.
