Confidentiality

Legal and ethical responsibilities require that private sessions remain confidential. Therefore, no information will be released to another professional or agency without your written consent. Exceptions will be made only if you endanger, or may endanger, yourself or others, and/or in the case of child abuse or elder abuse. In these cases the law requires your therapist to share certain information with specific outside parties.

Voice Mail/Emergencies

Mel is available by telephone should a situation arise that cannot wait until your next scheduled appointment. In such cases, please leave a message on her voicemail, indicating the nature of the situation and Mel will return your call as soon as possible. If you are experiencing an emergency and need immediate assistance, please call 911.
