  • Virtual Counseling Confidentiality Disclosure

    During school closure, Hamilton counselors will continue to work collaboratively with students and families in providing interventions that coincide with student’s academic and career goals, their social-emotional development, and that support the overall well-being of our students. Hamilton counselors will work hard to adhere to the same standards and ethical practices used in face-to-face counseling through new virtual platforms. Please note that as with any form of technology, virtual services offered by Hamilton counselors Ms. Sam and Ms. Asia, or clinician Ms. Ivy, via email, audio, and video conferencing, cannot be guaranteed as secure and confidential. However, our Hamilton counselors and clinician will consistently use best practice to try to protect confidentiality to their ability. In conjunction with other safeguards, ASCA (American School Counselor Association) recommends use of headphones with microphone for both counselor and student, and a private room to access technology. If you have questions about virtual counseling services or safeguards in support of confidentiality through use of virtual counseling communications, please contact your/your student’s counselor for additional insight.
