Confidentiality Statement

Counseling may involve the sharing of sensitive and private information about yourself. We will not share this information with anyone without your permission, including school administrators, faculty, or parents. There are however, several exceptions to confidentiality:

  • Child or elder abuse or neglect
  • The potential of harm to yourself or others
  • A legally valid court ordered subpoena
  • Staff and supervisory consultations

The situations above, with the exception of consultations, are extremely rare, but should they occur we would advise you of any action that may be taken.

We are unable to ensure the confidentiality of e-mail, so students should use caution when using this method of communication.
