Termination of Therapy Relationship
Your termination of the therapy process can happen at anytime. However, it is strongly recommended one review and one closing session is undertaken prior to disengagement of the therapeutic relationship. This is for your protection and is strongly recommended. Termination does not require any explanation from you, thus can happen for any reason. If termination of the process is initiated by the therapist it can be for one of the following: (1) goals have been reached, no need for therapy (2) Clinical issues have been uncovered, or presented that are beyond my current training (3) some other ethical concern has presented (4) a conflict of interest has presented in which continuation of the therapy process is impossible. In cases 2, 3, and 4 a referral will be provided.
