Disclosure Statement

This statement is being provided to you so that you are aware of your rights as a psychotherapy client. Please read this and discuss any questions or concerns you have before signing it.

My name, address, and phone number: Marie C. Murphy, LPC, 3401 Quebec St., Suite4500, Denver, CO 80222, (720) 729-0229. I earned a Master's Degree in the field of Professional Counseling from the Illinois School of Professional Counseling in Schaumberg, Illinois. I am a licensed professional counselor with the state of Colorado. My license number is LPC.0014206.

The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies has the general responsibility of regulating the practice of licensed psychologists, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, licensed marriage and family therapists, licensed school psychologist practicing outside the school setting, and unlicensed individuals who practice psychotherapy. All questions and/or complaints should be addressed to: Department of Regulatory Agencies, Mental Health Section, Board of Psychologist Examiners, 1560 Broadway, Suite 1350, Denver, Colorado 80202, (303) 894-7800.

Client rights and important information:

         Generally speaking, the information provided by and to you as the client during the therapy sessions is legally confidential. Since the information is legally confidential, I cannot be forced to disclose any of your information without your consent. Information disclosed to me is privileged communication and cannot be disclosed in any court of competent jurisdiction in the State of Colorado without the consent of the person to whom the testimony sought relates.

         There are exceptions to the 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 shall not apply to any delinquency or criminal proceedings, except as provided in section 13-90-107 C.R.S. Confidentiality may also be waived in the event of physical abuse and/or neglect of a child, including any past or present sexual contact with a minor. All therapists are required by law to report such instances to the Denver Dept of Social Services. Additionally, in the event of imminent danger to yourself or another person, I am required by law, to protect you, which may result in you being hospitalized, and I have a duty to warn anyone who may be in imminent danger as a result of your threats or frame of mind.

         As to the regulatory requirements applicable to mental health professionals: a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Professional Counselor must hold a master's degree in their profession and have two years of post-masters supervision. A Licensed Psychologist must hold a doctorate degree in psychology and have one year of post-doctoral supervision. A Licensed Social Worker must hold a master's degree in social work. A Psychologist Candidate, a Marriage and Family Therapist Candidate, and a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate must hold the necessary licensing degree and be in the process of completing the required supervision for licensure. A Certified Addiction Counselor I (CAC I) must be a high school graduate, and complete required training hours and 1000 hours of supervised experience. A CAC II must complete additional required training hours and 2,000 hours of supervised experience. A CAC III must have a bachelor's degree in behavioral health, and complete additional required training hours and 2,000 hours of supervised experience. A Licensed Addiction Counselor must have a clinical master's degree and meet the CAC III requirements. A Registered Psychotherapist is registered with the State Board of Registered Psychotherapists, is not licensed or certified, and no degree, training or experience is required.

         You are entitled to receive information from me about my methods of therapy, the techniques I use, the duration of your therapy (if I can determine it), and my fee structure. Please ask if you would like to receive this information.

         In a professional relationship (such as ours), sexual intimacy between a therapist and a client is never appropriate and should be reported to the board that licenses, registers, or certifies the licensee, registrant or certificate holder.

         You can seek a second opinion from another therapist or terminate therapy at any time.

Fee Information:

My standard fee is $150 for a 50-minute session. If your treatment is covered by insurance, the copayment, coinsurance payment or payment towards a deductible is due from you at the time of service.  You may make your payment by check, cash or credit card. If checks are returned due to insufficient funds, a $25 fee will be charged to you. As a general policy, I request that clients pay me directly. Meetings with auxiliary medical or legal consultants either by phone or in person and report writing will be billed at my standard fee. If payment is in arrears more than 90 days and a fee payment schedule cannot be agreed upon, your account will be turned over to a collection agency, an attorney, or small claims court.

Missed appointments and cancellations:

If you are unable to keep an appointment, please notify me as soon as possible. If you cancel or miss an appointment without giving me 24 hours' notice, you will be billed the full fee for the session.Insurance companies do not provide reimbursement for cancelled or missed sessions. It is important to note that this policy is in place to emphasize the importance of your coming, not to penalize you.  We want you to come and actively participate in the treatment; certainly, it is more rewarding for us when you are fully engaged in the process.  But we do enforce cancellation and no-show charges. 

Telephone calls:

If you need to speak to me between regularly scheduled sessions, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible. Telephone calls for the purpose of scheduling are expected and are not billed. I do not charge for brief conversations but any discussion that goes beyond 10 minutes or more than three 10-minute discussions per week will be billed to you on a prorated basis. I am generally available between the hours of 8am and 7pm, Monday through Saturday. If an emergency arises after those hours, please call 911 or go to the nearest available emergency room.

Health Information Privacy Notice (HIPAA):

By signing this disclosure, you acknowledge receipt of the HIPAA policies for your review. Once you have reviewed these policies, please return a signed copy to me. You are not required to sign this notice to receive treatment. Please verbally inform me if you elect to not sign the notice. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please feel free to ask me.

I have read the preceding information, it has also been provided verbally, and I understand my rights as a client/ patient.
