Ohio law and the ethics of professional counseling and social work practice require that counselors cannot release information about those who are in counseling to anyone without the written permission of the client. Therefore, if you call the counselor he or she cannot tell you what your son or daughter is discussing in counseling or if he is even a client here. We can listen to your concerns about your son or daughter and we will convey those concerns to him or her. Please feel free to call us at any time if you are worried about your son or daughter while they are attending school.
