Defining You takes your privacy very seriously and follows the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), a federal law that provides privacy protections and patient rights regarding the use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI) used for treatment, payment, and health care operations. If you have any questions regarding our privacy practices, please feel free to contact us at any time.

This document contains information about our professional services and business policies. It provides a clear framework for our work together and will facilitate our therapeutic relationship.

The purpose of meeting with a counselor or therapist is to get help with problems in your life that are bothering you or that are keeping you from being successful in important areas of your life. It is important that you feel comfortable talking to your therapist about the issues that are bothering you. Sometimes these issues will include things you don’t want your parents or guardians to know about. This document outlines the exceptions to privacy, as well as guidelines for parental involvement in treatment.

The therapists at Defining You are not custody evaluators and cannot make any recommendations on custody. Please contact your lawyer who can refer you to a licensed professional who DOES provide custody evaluation if needed. Due to the sensitive nature of divorce and all potential issues that may arise in such cases, we have very specific policies to which you must agree before we enter a counseling relationship. This document outlines those policies.
