**Privacy and Limits of Confidentiality**
When you are meeting with your school counselor, please keep in mind the limits of confidentiality that your school counselor is legally and ethically bound by. Everything you tell them will stay between you and your school counselor except in the following instances:
*Please note that your school counselor cannot guarantee the confidentiality of the physical setting that you are in. This means that we don’t know if there are unintended viewers or recipients in your physical setting. Please be mindful of choosing a private space and if possible, use headphones with a microphone to promote your privacy. Start using the Webex chat feature with your school counselor if you are worried and need more privacy during your conversation.
