Colorado law protects the confidentiality of information shared between a client and a psychologist. Client information cannot be disclosed without written permission, except in certain situations.
- Suspected child abuse of neglect, or dependent adult or elder abuse/neglect. I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person(s), I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
Please see the Common Questions page on this website for more information about my Confidentiality Policy.
