Confidentiality and Privacy Policies



We recognize the personal nature of information revealed in therapy, and respect the confidentiality of every client.

Kansas State Law recognizes and protects the relationship between the psychotherapist and the client. In order for any information to be disclosed, the therapist must obtain written permission from the client.

In accordance with state regulations and/or professional ethics, there are a few specific exceptions when we are required to break confidentiality and report information obtained in the therapy process:

  • If the client presents reasons for the therapist to suspect
  • child abuse/neglect, dependent adult abuse/neglect, or elder abuse/neglect.
  • If a client reveals the intent to harm another person(s), in which case the therapist must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client reveals the intent to harm himself/herself, steps will be taken to ensure their safety. If the client does not cooperate, additional steps, provided by law, will be taken without the client’s permission.
  • If a court order exists that requires information regarding the therapy process be provided to the court.
