Confidentiality is your security that the information
you share with your therapist is safe and secure.
While you are free to disclose your personal information
to whomever you wish, confidentiality provides you
security that we will not share your personal information with
others. There are exceptions to this, however.
you indicate that you are planning on harming yourself
or someone else, in any way, this information will not
remain confidential, as we are legally mandated to
ensure that you are safe.
Likewise, if a minor reports that they have been harmed
in some way, or report they may be harmed, we are
legally mandated to ensure a minor is safe.
Release of information forms are generally utilized in
situations where you request that we share information
in your records with external (entities outside of PSC)
sources. A copy of this form can be viewed by clicking

At PSC, we believe that your personal experiences and
those documented in your clinical record, deserve the
utmost security. We have a unique training environment,
and this requires ongoing dedication to training and
practice in confidentiality procedures. Our staff,
therapists, and supervisors are trained in
confidentiality guidelines. We have also taken extra
steps and measures to ensure that your information
remains confidential within our unique atmosphere.
All files are kept under double lock and key, and are
available to your therapist, their supervisor, and the
staff that administrate the clinic, and are ONLY
available on an as-needed basis. While cases are
staffed with teams of therapists, limited identifying
information is discussed, and when there may be
conflicts of interest, these cases are staffed
individually or assigned specifically to avoid
All staff, therapists, supervisors, and individuals who
work at the PSC are required to know and practice
professional guidelines related to confidentiality, and
our policies specifically state that a violation of
these codes would result in loss of practice privileges.
It is important that you do realize, because of our
unique training atmosphere, supervisors and clinical
faculty MAY have access to your records in order to
effectively train and supervisor your therapist
(Graduate Student Clinician). The Director of the PSC
may also have access to your records.
