The law protects the relationship between a client and a counselor and information cannot be disclosed without written permission.
- Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
- If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person/s, I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
- If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in ensuring their safety. If they do not cooperate, I will take further measures without their permission that are provided to me by law in order to ensure their safety.
Additional Confidentiality & Privacy Limitations:
By signing the financial agreement included in Inner Peace Coaching & Counseling’s “Informed Consent for Counseling” services, or the “Coaching Agreement” for coaching services, you waive your right to confidentiality of any information needed to pursue collection of your entire account balance in the event of non-payment after several warning letters.
Late Cancellation/No Show Policies:
Cancellation of an appointment is expected no later than the calendar day prior to the scheduled appointment by calling my land line (not my cell phone) at 513/201-5949 and leaving a voice mail message. Failure to do so will result in a $50.00 "late cancellation" fee due immediately upon receipt of an invoice. Failure to call/show up for a scheduled appointment will result in a $50.00 "no show" fee due immediately upon receipt of an invoice. In the case of inclement weather, only you can decide if you can safely drive to your appointment; however, failure to show for your appointment due to weather will still be subject to the "late cancellation" and "no show" policy/fee unless a Level III snow emergency is in effect . In the event that I cancel your appointment with less than 24 hours' notice to you, I will provide you with a coupon that waives one future late cancellation or no show fee that you might otherwise incur.
