Confidentiality

What you say in counseling will be treated by all Counseling Center staff with strict confidentiality. Your information is protected by state and federal laws and will not be disclosed to anyone outside Counseling Services without your written permission.

In some instances, when, in the judgment of the counselor, you or someone else is in imminent danger, your permission may not be needed.

Counseling records are considered personal health information and are protected by federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) statutes.
