    We provide the following information to ensure both therapists and clients have a transparent understanding of the business aspects of their collaboration. While these policies are generally non-negotiable, we are open to discussions and flexibility in cases of hardship. Should you have any questions or require further clarification, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Your feedback and concerns are valued, and we encourage open communication to address any issues that may arise. 


    All client information is strictly confidential and will not be disclosed to any third party without the explicit written consent of the client. This includes confirming whether an individual is a current client or not. The only exception to this policy is if maintaining confidentiality poses a direct threat to the client’s life or the safety of others. 

    Informed Consent

    At Parkhurst Associates, we recognize the importance of informed consent and respect our clients’ autonomy in deciding their treatment path. While we acknowledge the potential financial benefits of continued therapy or referrals to other treatment modalities, such as group, couples, or family counseling, we prioritize our clients’ well-being above all else. We welcome open discussion about any concerns regarding treatment decisions. 

    Forensic and Litigation Services

    For inquiries regarding forensic and litigation services, please contact Dr. John Parkhurst at [email protected].

    Hospitalization, Emergencies, and Crisis Management

    As a private practice group, Parkhurst Associates Mental Health Services is not equipped to provide acute psychiatric care. Clients are expected to manage between sessions without supervision. While we are not affiliated with any specific hospital, in the rare event of a mental health emergency requiring hospitalization, we maintain a network of referrals to expedite admission to a suitable mental health treatment facility.
