Information shared within counseling sessions is kept confidential with a few exceptions. At times it is necessary to involve others in the healing process. Those exceptions include:
Clients who are suicidal or homicidal.
Clients disclose the abuse of a minor or elderly person.
Sharing personal information is also necessary if a client wishes to use health insurance or if a counselor is subpoenaed to testify in a court case. All counseling clients of Kairos receive a HIPPA notice of privacy practices prior to the first session and are encouraged to share any questions or concerns regarding our policy.
