My professional ethics (that is, my profession’s rules about values and moral matters) and the laws of this state prevent me from telling anyone else what you disclose during session unless you give me written permission. This respect for your privacy is what is called confidentiality.
However, there are some limits or exceptions regarding confidentiality that are mandated by the state laws. I want you to understand clearly what I can and cannot keep confidential. The limits in confidentiality (exceptions) are to be enforced when you or other persons are in physical danger. In those cases the law requires me to tell others about it.
