As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the State of Ohio, I am bound by confidentiality rules and guidelines. Everything said is confidential, with the following exceptions:
1. Cases of child or elder abuse
2. If someone is planning, has the means, and is intending to seriously harm themselves or someone else
3. If my records are subpoenaed by a court of law
Adolescents: We will discuss during the first session rules and parameters around confidentiality. When the adolescent is my direct client, confidentiality will be maintained with parents with the exception of the above listed guidelines.
