Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of the therapeutic relationship between a client and a therapist. Colorado law requires that a therapist keep confidential records about what is discussed in therapy, and not disclose any protected information to others, unless specific permission has been given by the client or in situations addressed by Colorado law (outlined below).
You can expect that what you discuss in session with your therapist will not be shared with anyone, with the few legal exceptions outlined below.
Successful therapy requires a high degree of trust between therapist and client. We take our responsibility to protect client confidentiality
Colorado State Law Regarding Confidentiality
According to state law and professional ethics, a therapist must maintain confidentiality except for the following situations:
* If you reveal information of suspected past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults, and elders. In such cases, we are legally required to report any concerns to state authorities, including Child Protective Services, Adult Protective Services, and/or law enforcement.
* If a therapist has reason to suspect the client is seriously in danger of harming him/herself or has threatened to harm another person. In such cases, a therapist is required to take appropriate steps to maintain safety and protect against harm.
*If court of law issues a legal subpeona for the records or your treatment
*If you are in treatment as a result of a court order
*If you reveal information that involves a threat to national security
Depending on your needs and situation, therapy can be short-term for a specific issue, or longer-term to work on more difficult patterns or more chronic problems. We will suggest a schedule for meeting with you that best meets your needs.
When the problems or behaviors of one family member are causing problems for other family members, it may be time for family therapy. A family therapist works with your family to understand how your family interacts, and to help you find new ways to relate to each other that lead to less conflict and greater happiness.

We offer appointments during the day as well as in the late afternoon and early evening. Each therapist at our Center makes his or her own appointments. Please discuss your schedule and availability with your therapist to find an appointment time that works best for you. Unfortunately, we do not offer appointments on the weekends.
Whether insurance will cover your therapy sessions will depend on which therapist you work with and whether his or her services are covered by your insurance company. The therapist you choose to work with will discuss insurance coverage with you and help you determine if coverage is available through your insurance company.
We encourage you to actively participate in the therapy process and try out what you learn in your therapy sessions. A primary goal of therapy is to help you bring what you learn in session to your everyday life, and to help you move toward the life and lifestyle that you want.
