Privacy Statement

The limitations of confidentiality, such as those based on the civil laws of each state, regulations, and judicial precedent will be explained to each client as part of the intake process prior to any counseling services by Dr. Beverly Wright. Examples of limitation or exceptions to confidentiality include, but are not limited to, such situations as:

- Legal Mandate, Where Child Abuse or Elder Abuse Is Suspected or Apparent
- When Revealing the Information to Someone Would Prevent a Clear and Immediate Danger to a Person
- Legal Proceedings in Which the Member, Counselor, Caregiver, or Minister Does Not Have the Privilege

When a client, or other person receiving pastoral care, makes a statement in the presence of a third party, that statement is not protected by confidentiality privilege.

The presence of a third party negates any inference that the statement was intended to be privileged communication or an act of confession, and as a counselor Dr. Beverly Wright will document the same.
