Limits of Confidentiality Statement  In accordance to Texas State Law….

 

All information between the practitioner/ therapist and the patient is held strictly confidential. There are 

legal exceptions to this:

  • § The patient authorizes a release of information with a signature.
  • § The patient's mental condition becomes an issue in a lawsuit.
  • § The patient presents as a physical danger to self (Johnson v County of Los Angeles, 1983).

In the latter two cases, the practitioner is required by law to inform potential victims and legal authorities

so that protective measures can be taken. All written and spoken material from any and all sessions is confidential 

unless written permission is given to release all or part of the information to a specified person, persons, agency. 

or institution. If group therapy is utilized as part of the treatment, details of the group discussion are not to be

Consent for Treatment  

 

I authorize and request my practitioner, Kathleen Gleason LPC-S ~ Boerne Counseling and Consultant Service, 

to carry out psychological and/or psychiatric exams, treatment and/or diagnostic procedures, which now, or during 

the course of my treatment become advisable. I understand the purpose of these procedures will be explained to me 

upon my request and that they are subject to my agreement. I also understand that while the course of my 

treatment is designed to be helpful, my practitioner can make no guarantees about the outcome of my treatment. 

Further, the psychotherapeutic process can bring up uncomfortable feelings and reactions such as anxiety, sadness, 

and anger. I understand that this a normal response to working through unresolved life experiences and that these 

reactions will be worked on between my practitioner and me.  A potential side effect of psychotherapy and/or 

psychological testing is that because of the above feelings that may arise, clients can experience a feeling that 

they are getting worse before beginning to feel they are getting better, and I hereby acknowledge this potential risk.
