Liberty recognizes that you may wish to keep your concerns confidential. Confidential communications are those communications that cannot be disclosed to another person, without your consent, except under very limited circumstances such as allegations involving the physical or sexual abuse of a child (under the age of 18) or vulnerable adult or an imminent threat to the life of any person. If you desire the details of your experience to be kept confidential, you should speak with a medical professional, professional counselor, minister or other pastoral counselor, or confidential advocate.
