If you are currently involved in a personal/family court case or custody case and are seeking expert assessment or testimony - not treatment, please review our Court Testimony Policy Form. Our practice is designed to provide clinical treatment that is confidential and in the best interest of the client, not to be used to anyone else's advantage in a court of law. In treatment, we adhere to the protection of our patients under the Florida statutes therapist/patient privilege and federal HIPPA law, and the ethical guidelines of the APA & AAMFT.
Forensic mental health assessments are for clients not in treatment at this practice and are designed only to assist the courts - not treat symptoms. In forensic mental health and family assessments, the patient waives his or her right to confidentiality from the courts. Contact our legal department for more details. Therefore, we do not provide psychotherapy for court or USCIS involved cases whom are being assessed at this practice.
