Solutions Therapy, PLLC


Information about you, your child and the services you receive is private and protected under state and federal laws.  With exception to certain circumstances I cannot release your information without your express written consent.  These exceptions are clearly defined in my privacy policy document and include disclosure in the event that a patient is an immanent danger to himself or others, or as a vulnerable person defined under law is being maltreated.  Such disclosures are rare in my practice and are described below:


Teens and Privacy

Teens are often very concerned about their privacy and can be hesitant to speak with a therapist with their parent in the room or if the contents of their sessions are fully discussed with their parents.  I typically have parents and teens sign an agreement stating that I will keep parents informed about treatment progress and general session content, but will maintain their privacy.  I ensure that teens understand that some things, such as dangerous behavior or behavior outside typical age norms, may need to be discussed with their parent and I will discuss any concerns with the teen prior to discussing them with the parent. 


  • Danger to self or other:  If you are at immanent risk of harming yourself or make substantial threats to harm another person I am permitted and in most cases required by law to inform the threatened party or others in order to protect you or another person.  
  • Harm to minors and vulnerable adults:  If I have reasonable suspicion that a minor child or vulnerable adult has been abused or neglected I am required by law to report my concerns to the Department of Social Services.  
  • Court Proceedings:  If my records are legally subpoenaed or court ordered I will be required to release them in accordance with the law.
