Your privacy and confidentiality are of utmost concern to me. Our work is sensitive and all communication and conversation are kept in strict confidence. I will only discuss your case if I have written permission from you within the confines of the law.
For children, I request that parents or guardians allow us confidentiality. If there is a serious health concern, I inform parents and in general I keep parents up to date about their children’s progress. However, I ask that specifics about our work together remain private.
I follow strict federal and state privacy regulations that serve to guard your private information. Electronic notes are kept on a password-protected computer and paper files are stored in locked cabinets.
As part of my ongoing efforts to improve my service, I am moving to an online electronic health record system. In compliance with federal HIPAA privacy laws, you are free to examine my business agreement.
