1. Hedman Counseling, PC is located at 4297 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Suite 204; Colorado Springs, CO 80918; 719-235-5325. The mental health professional located at Hedman Counseling, PC is Rachael Rosner. Rachael earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from DePaul University in 2013 and earned a Masters degree in ClinicalMental Health Counseling from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs in 2020.

2. Everyone twelve (12) years and older must sign this disclosure statement. A parent or legal guardian with the authority to consent to mental health services for a minor child/ren in their custody must sign this disclosure statement on behalf of their minor child under the age of twelve (12) years old.  A parent or legal guardian with the authority to consent to mental health services for a minor child/ren in their custody must also sign this disclosure statement on behalf of their minor child over the age of twelve (12) but under the age of fifteen (15) years old, unless said minor is voluntarily seeking psychotherapeutic services for themselves without their parent's or legal guardian's knowledge or consent. In this case, the minor who is between the age of twelve (12) and fourteen (14) years old, in addition to this disclosure statement, shall also sign a Voluntary Consent for Psychotherapeutic Services form.

The mental health professional providing services to a minor between the age of twelve (12) and fourteen (14) may advise the minor's parent or legal guardian of services provided with the consent of the minor or a court in specific circumstances, unless notifying the parent or legal guardian would be inappropriate or detrimental to the minor's care and treatment. The mental health professional may notify the parent or legal guardian, without the minor's consent, if in their professional opinion the minor is unable to manage their own care or treatment, or if the minor expresses any suicidal ideation. 

In divorce or custody situations and because of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies view on parental consent, it is Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner's policy to seek the consent of both parents/legal guardians, however this consent does not supersede any court order outlining parental decision-making and custodial rights. This policy is irrespective of any court determination and this is the governing policy unless the child's health, safety, and welfare could be at risk. If this is the case, you must inform Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner so that appropriate action for the protection and welfare of the child may be taken. This disclosure statement contains the policies and procedures of Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner and is HIPAA compliant.

5. Generally speaking, the information provided by and to a client during therapy sessions is legally confidential if the psychotherapist is a Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Social Worker, Licensed Professional Counselor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified and Licensed Addiction Counselor, or a Registered Psychotherapist. If the information is legally confidential, the psychotherapist cannot be forced to disclose the information without the client's consent or in any court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Colorado without the consent of the person to whom the testimony sought relates. 

6. There are exceptions to this general rule of legal confidentiality. These exceptions are listed in the Colorado statutes, C.R.S. 12-43-218. You should be aware that provisions concerning disclosure of confidential communications does not apply to any delinquency or criminal proceedings, except as provided in C.R.S 13-90-107. There are additional exceptions that I will identify to you as the situations arise during treatment or in our professional relationship. For example, I am required to report child abuse or neglect situations; I am required to report the abuse or exploitation of an at-risk adult or elder or the imminent risk of abuse or exploitation; if I determine that you are a danger to yourself or others, including those identifiable by their association with a specific location or entity, I am required to disclose such information to the appropriate authorities or to warn the party, location, or entity you have threatened; if you become gravely disabled, I am required to report this to the appropriate authorities. I may also disclose confidential information in the course of supervision or consultation in accordance with my policies and procedures, in the investigation of a complaint or civil suit filed against me, or if I am ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction to disclose such information. You should also be aware that if you should communicate any information involving a threat to yourself or to others, I may be required to take immediate action to protect you or others from harm. In addition, there may be other exceptions to confidentiality as provided by HIPAA regulations and other Federal and/or Colorado laws and regulations that may apply. 

Additionally, although confidentiality extends to communications by text, email, telephone, and/or other electronic means, I cannot guarantee that those communications will be kept confidential and/or that a third-party may not access our communications. Even though I may utilize state of the art encryption methods, firewalls, and back-up systems to help secure our communication, there is a risk that our electronic or telephone communications may be compromised, unsecured, and/or accessed by a third-party. Please review and fill out Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner's Consent for Communication of Protected Health Information by Unsecure Transmissions. 

"No Secrets" Policy:

7. When treating a couple or a family, the couple or family is considered to be the client. At times, it may be necessary to have a private session with an individual member of that couple or family. There may also be times when an individual member of the couple or family chooses to share information in a different manner that does not include other members of the couple or family (i.e on a telephone call, via email, or via private conversation). In general, what is said in these individual conversations is considered confidential and will not be disclosed to any third party unless your therapist is required to do so by law. However, in the event that you disclose information that is directly related to the treatment of the couple or family it may be necessary to share that information with the other members of the couple or the family in order to facilitate the therapeutic process. Your therapist will use theirbest judgment as to whether, when, and to what extent such disclosures will be made. If appropriate, your therapist will first give the individual the opportunity to make the disclosure themselves. This "no secrets" policy is intended to allow your therapist to continue to treat the couple or family by preventing, to the extent possible, a conflict of interest to arise where an individual's interests may not be consistent with the interests of the couple or the family being treated. If you feel it necessary to talk about matters that you do not wish to have disclosed, you should consult with a separate therapist who can treat you individually.

When two or more individuals are included in the therapeutic setting and the system/relationship is considered the 'client', each party is required to sign a separate statement of the release of information for the request to be honored.

"No Secrets" in Custody Circumstances Policy:

8.  When treating a Client who is a Minor under the age of fifteen (15) and where there exists a custody arrangement between the parents or legal guardians (such as a divorce or separation), it is my policy to communicate with both parents/guardians via email (i.e. all communication will "cc" both parties). This policy is necessary to maintain transparency and professionalism, and to ensure the well-being of the therapeutic relationship with the Minor Client. This policy does not supersede any court order outlining decision-making or custodial rights but is or may be required by DORA. Further, I reserve the right, in my sole discretion, to engage in any individual email communication or face-to-face interaction in the lobby/waiting area. In the event that such an interaction occurs, I will notify the other party of said interaction and summarize the contents of the conversation, unless prohibited by professional rules or regulations regarding the protection of the health, safety, and welfare of the child/ren. 

This policy will also be extended to clients who are over the age of twelve (12) but under the age of fifteen (15) when and if their parents or legal guardians are notified of their receiving psychotherapeutic services.

Extraordinary Events:

9. In the case that I become disabled, die, or am away on an extended leave of absence (hereinafter "extraordinary event,") the following Mental Health Professional Designee will have access to my client files. If I am unable to contact you prior to the extraordinary event occurring, the Mental Health Professional Designee will contact you.

12. I understand that if I have any questions about my therapist's methods, techniques, or duration of therapy, fee structure, or would like additional information, I may ask at any time during the therapy process.

Although every effort will be made to provide a positive and healing experience, every therapeutic experience is unique and varies from person to person. Results achieved in a therapeutic relationship with one person are not a guarantee of similar results with all clients. 

15. I understand that my therapist may refer me to and/or expect me to avail myself of outside supportive resources, including, but not limited to, other health care professionals, as deemed appropriate. A failure on my part to comply with such recommendations may result in termination of the therapeutic relationship. I understand that my therapist will discuss this with me prior to terminating the therapeutic relationship for this reason. It is acknowledged that online or distance counseling is not a substitute for medication given under the care of a psychiatrist or doctor. I understand and agree that Rachael Rosner is neither a psychiatrist nor a doctor and is therefore not legally allowed to prescribe medications or to give medical advice. It is further understood that online or distance counseling is not appropriate if you are experiencing a crisis or having suicidal or homicidal thoughts.

16. Because of the nature of therapy, I understand that my therapeutic relationship has to be different from most other relationships. In order to protect the integrity of the counseling process the therapeutic relationship must remain solely that of therapist and client. This means that my therapist cannot be my friend, cannot have any type of business relationship with me other than the counseling relationship (i.e. cannot hire me, lend to or borrow from me; or trade or barter for services in exchange for counseling); cannot have any kind of romantic or sexual relationship with a former or current client, or any other people close to a client, and cannot hold the role of counselor to theirrelatives, friends, the relatives of friends, people known socially, or business contacts.

17. I understand that should I cancel within 24 business hours of my appointment or fail to show up for my scheduled appointment without notice ("no-show"), my therapist has a right to charge my credit card on file, or my account, for the full amount of my session.

18. I also affirm, by signing this form, I am at least fifteen (15) years old and consent to treatment and therapy services here at Hedman Counseling, PC. In the event that I am the legal guardian and/or custodial parent with the legal right to consent to treatment for any minor child/ren who is under the age of fifteen (15) and for whom I am requesting therapy services here at Hedman Counseling, PC, I understand it is Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner's policy to seek the consent of both parents/legal guardians. Further, in the event of a custody or divorce dispute, I and the therapist must obtain the consent from the other parent/legal guardian for my minor child/ren's treatment in accordance with DORA policy. 

If I am the non-custodial parent signing this consent form for my minor child/ren's treatment in accordance with DORA's policy, I understand that my access to my child/ren's treatment and client record may be limited by court order.  

In the event that I am over the age of twelve (12) but under the age of fifteen (15) years old, I affirm that I am consenting to treatment and psychotherapeutic services here at Hedman Counseling, PC, and that I have been advised by Rachael Rosner of the importance of involving my parents and/or legal guardians, and that I have willingly signed the Voluntary Consent for Psychotherapeutic Services form.

19. I understand that if I am consenting to treatment and therapy services for my minor child/ren that my therapist will request that I produce, in advance of commencing services with Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner, the Court Order Custody Agreement and/or Parenting Plan that grants me the authority to consent to mental health services for my minor child and make therapeutic decisions on behalf of my minor child/ren.    I also understand that it is Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner's policy to request and seek consent from both my minor child/ren's parents, but that such consent does not supersede the Court Order Custody Agreement and/or Parenting Plan. By signing this form, I understand and consent to Hedman Counseling, PC/Rachael Rosner's "No Secrets" in Custody Circumstances Policy as outlined above. Further, I understand and agree to keep my therapist informed of any proceedings or supplemental court orders that affect my parenting rights, custody arrangements, and decision-making authority. I understand that failing to provide the Court Order Custody Agreement and/or Parenting Plan will prohibit my therapist from providing therapy to my minor child/ren. I understand that it is beyond the scope of my therapist's practice to provide custody recommendations. Any request for custody recommendations will be denied. A Court is able to appoint professionals with the expertise to make such recommendations.

20. By signing this form, I affirm that I am fully informed of the therapy services I am requesting and that HedmanCounseling, PC/Rachael Rosner is providing, and grant my consent to receive such therapy services.
