Privacy & Confidentiality
Privacy and confidentiality are at the heart of clinical treatment: your privacy is our utmost concern. However, it may occasionally be useful to share information about your treatment with, for example, a previous therapist of yours, or with an insurance company whose policy requires certain information about the treatment that it covers. In these and any other cases, information about your treatment will never be released to another professional, company or institution without prior discussion between you and your therapist and your written approval.
If it is convenient to both of you, you may at times wish to communicate with your therapist by email. Please be aware, however, that email correspondence cannot be guaranteed to be confidential, since it can potentially be breached in transit by hackers, internet service providers, or others. For this reason, although email, like any other form of client/therapist communication, will be considered to be private, CRPC is not able to guarantee the confidentiality of email correspondence.
CRPC protects the privacy of your health information in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). For further information, click here to see our Notice of Privacy Practices.
