Is therapy confidential?
Information shared in therapy is considered privileged communication. There are, however, a few things that require a therapist to disclose information, with or without the consent of the client. North Carolina law and ethical practice require me to notify appropriate state agencies if I suspect or know of:
- Child abuse
- Abuse to an elderly or disabled person
- Eminent danger to yourself and/or another person
- If I am subpoenaed by a court of law
