Messages and Accessibility When you call my number, (206) 527-3081, you will reach my confidential voice mail where you may leave a message. I check my messages regularly and will call you back as soon as possible. I encourage you to call back if you have not received a call from me within 24 hours as I sometimes miss messages on my phone. It is never my intent not to call back, so if you haven't heard back from me it is most likely that I haven't received your message.
Confidentiality All information revealed by you during your therapy with me is confidential and will not be shared with anyone without your prior written permission. There are, however, certain circumstances under which I am required by law to release information without your prior consent. These are: imminent danger to yourself or other(s), child or elder abuse, or duly issued subpoena.
