Yes. Everything we talk about in session is confidential unless you disclose child abuse, dependent adult abuse, elder abuse, active suicidal thoughts/plans or homicidal thoughts/plans. If you disclose any of those mentioned issues, I am a mandated reporter in the State of California, which means that I must report such issues in order to protect you, the victim of abuse, or an intended victim from harm. I DO NOT have to report suicidal thoughts unless you have plans and means to carry it out. I DO NOT have to report homicidal thoughts unless you have plans and means to carry it out, as well.
