Counseling services abide by state laws and professional ethical standards in maintaining confidentiality.
These standards prevent us from releasing information to anyone without the written consent of the student. Disclosure of information may be made if, in the professional judgment of the counselor, the student presents a danger to themselves or others or if the counselor has reasonable belief of abuse or neglect of a child or vulnerable adult.


We welcome your calls if you have a concern about your child, however, your child will have to contact us to initiate services.
