_ I hold the information you share with me with the greatest respect. Generally, I will tell no one about what you share with me. The privacy and confidentiality of our conversations and your records is protected by state law and by my profession’s code of ethics in all but a few circumstances. There are three circumstances in which I cannot legally and/or ethically guarantee confidentiality. Those instances include (1) when I believe you intend to harm yourself or another person, (2) when I believe a child, older person, or dependent adult has been or will be abused or neglected, and (3) if a judge orders a release of information. Otherwise, I will not tell anyone about your counseling, history, and that you are even a client without your full knowledge and written consent.
