Confidentiality and Privacy Practices

Confidentiality is a very important part of psychotherapy. I want to be careful in protecting the privacy of personal information my clients share with me in our work together. My professional ethics require that I maintain certain standards to protect my clients’ private health information (PHI). Federal and State laws also require that I protect my clients’ privacy by keeping certain legal standards in my use and disclosure of my clients’ information. These standards are found within a broader set of federal laws that are called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, commonly known as HIPAA. HIPAA requires me as a psychotherapist to protect my client’s PHI according to certain standards and limits. These standards and limits are explained in my Notice of Privacy Practices (NPP)

Please be sure to read this NPP before our first appointment. If you don’t read the NPP before we first meet, I will give you a copy to read at our first appointment and ask you to sign a consent form that confirms you have read and understood its content. You can also download the consent form on the Forms page. It is important that you read and understand this NPP so that you are fully informed in your consent to work with me and the ways in which your personal health information will be used and disclosed during our work together

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this NPP, how it is used or what is explained in it, please speak with me and I will do my best to answer your questions or concerns

I look forward to working together
