Confidentiality

As a general rule, the counselor will keep the information shared in meetings confidential unless they have the individual's written consent to disclose certain information. There are, however, exceptions to this rule that are important to understand before the individuals share personal information with the counselor in a meeting. In some situations, the counselor is required by law or by the guidelines of their profession to disclose information whether or not permission is given. Some of these situations are listed below.


Confidentiality cannot be maintained when:

  • The individual tells the counselor they plan to cause serious harm or death to themselves, and the counselor believes they have the intent and ability to carry out this threat in the very near future.
  • The individual tells the counselor they plan to cause serious harm or death to someone, and the counselor believes they have the intent and ability to carry out this threat in the very near future.
  • Individual is doing things that could cause serious harm to themselves or someone else, even if they do not intend to harm themselves or another person. 
  • The individual tells me they plan or are planning on breaking the law, and the counselor believes they have the intent and ability to carry out this threat in the very near future.
  • The individual tells the counselor they are being abused.
