Confidentiality and Trust

 

As a psychologist, Dr. Milbourne provides the quality of services required by the standards of professional psychologists. In keeping with those standards, strict confidentiality of all records of contact is maintained. It is policy not to release personally identifiable information concerning the use of services without prior permission of the person receiving the services. 

Legally and ethically, confidentiality cannot be maintained when: 

(1) there is a clear and present danger than someone’s life is at risk; 

(2) in the apparent abuse of a minor or dependent adult; and 

(3) court ordered in a criminal (not civil) judicial proceeding or USA Patriot Act subpoena. 

If you are concerned about or have questions regarding confidentiality, please feel free to contact me at any time.
