Privacy and Confidentiality

Client Confidentiality

Erika and all of those connected with Therapist NYC have the utmost regard for clients and their right to privacy. Erika pledges to maintain confidentiality with respect to all client-psychotherapist relationships and, except as required by law, will not disclose any personal information without your written permission.

Legally required exceptions to this confidentiality policy include:

  • Threats of serious bodily harm to another person or persons, which must be reported to the police and the intended victim(s).
  • Suspected child abuse, dependent adult abuse, or elder abuse, which must be immediately reported to the appropriate authorities.
  • Intent to inflict self-harm, which will prompt efforts to engage the clients’ cooperation in securing their safety. In the absence of such cooperation, safety measures will be taken without client permission, as provided by law.

In addition, if you choose to cover any portion of your therapy costs with insurance, then your insurance company will have access to the dates of your appointments and your diagnoses.
