Discreet High Profile Clients
Making the decision to start therapy is difficult for many people. We may wonder about certain things such as: Can I trust my therapist? Will he/she tell someone my secrets? Or, Will I run into someone who knows me at the therapist's office? While these concerns are valid for everyone, they may hold extra weight for high profile clients such as politicians, corporate executives, medical professionals, lawyers and celebrities
In terms of basic confidentiality, I am bound to keep everything that is discussed in the sessions completely private. In fact, a therapist cannot even confirm whether any individual is actually a client, let alone what was discussed.
Now, like with many things, there are a few exceptions. The confidentiality contract between a client and a therapist can be broken under a few specific circumstances which are:
Where there is a reasonable suspicion of child abuse, dependent adult abuse or elder adult abuse.
If you reveal to me that an alleged perpetrator is in contact with minors and there is a reasonable suspicion that he or she may still be abusing minors.
Where there is a reasonable suspicion that you may present a danger of violence to others.
Where there is a reasonable suspicion that you are likely to harm yourself unless protective measures are taken.
That answers the question of client/therapist confidentiality, but what about being seen in a therapist’s office – especially if you are well known?
We provide special scheduling accommodations
We provide therapy at alternative location
We provide video therapy, so you never have to come to the office in person.
In addition, alternative arrangements can be discussed.
I have worked discreetly with many high-profile individuals including politicians, corporate executives, medical professionals, lawyers and celebrities.
