Confidentiality is often a concern in psychotherapy and can be discussed before or during any meeting. You have the legal right to be informed in writing about policies, rights and procedures regarding the privacy of your personal information by any health care provider. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act(HIPAA) of 1996 requires that you read and sign my "Notice of Privacy Practices" before beginning treatment at my office.
