Privacy Policy

I am a social worker who is registered to practice in Ontario. My practice is guided by the Code of Ethics and Standards of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

These College Standards require me to make some notes for my own use, They are helpful to remind me of the facts and progress in your life situation. You may expect that all information I learn about you is confidential and respects your privacy. The paper records that I make are kept in a locked cabinet, and computerized records are locked with passwords known only to me.

I cannot release confidential information to anyone without your written consent. If you require a letter for a lawyer or employer, I will gladly write one provided you sign a release of information form. Everything you tell me is confidential. The only exception is if a person poses a risk of harm to themselves, or other people.

The record keeping and disclosure policies are governed by the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 (PHIPA). If you have any questions about confidentiality, or any other aspect of my practice, please do not hesitate to ask me.
