Is Therapy Private?

Teens often wonder if their therapy is private or not.


In Colorado, teens age 15 and older can seek therapy without the consent of a parent and their information is confidential in the same way it is for adults. Youth 12-14 can also consent for therapy without a parent, but parental involvement is highly encouraged and some basic information about therapy services remains available to parents/guardians. Those younger than 12 need their parent(s)' or guardian(s)' consent to participate in therapy and their parent or guardian has access to basic treatment information.

Therapists are required to keep your information confidential except in the following circumstances:

  • Suspected child abuse

  • Elder or disabled-persons abuse

  • Someone is a threat to self or others, ie. suicidal or homicidal

  • Someone shares information about a threat to national security

  • When the therapist is subpoenaed by a judge
