Privacy & Confidentiality

Your privacy is important to me, thus all of your personal information, is always held in the sternest of confidence. Additionally, anything transmitted over our website is exceedingly secure, and stored data is filed according to *H.I.P.A.A.compliance.


Confidential information disclosed in private therapy sessions is legally protected. However, there are some exceptions to this.  Example, instances of suspected child or elder abuse, or when a client presents a serious danger of violence toward himself or herself or another person. 


If you’d like to learn more about my ethical standards please contact my office can provide additional information.

 


What is HIPAA Compliance?


HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed.


This includes covered entities (CE), anyone who provides treatment, payment and operations in healthcare, and business associates (BA), anyone with access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment or operations. Subcontractors, or business associates of business associates, must also be in compliance.
