WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW MEMBER OF OUR TEAM! 
Holly Sanborn, MA 
Holly holds a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy and Counseling from Southwestern College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska and received her bachelor’s degree from UAF in Art, with a focus in ceramics, and Psychology in 2011. Holly has always had a life-long dream of becoming an Art Therapist and views art as an integral process to healing the mind, body and soul. She enjoys working with children, frequently using art and play therapy, and holds a Children’s Mental Health Certificate from Southwestern College. Holly’s internship, in 2016, led to a very well-rounded experience with working with children and families as well as adults and adolescents struggling with eating disorders at the Eating Disorders Treatment Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her approach to therapy is person-centered and strength-based and likes to individualize treatment for her clients so they can ultimately reach healing and well-being. Holly, herself, enjoys creating art in her spare time because she knows that creativity cultivates balance, inner-peace and helps keep her grounded. Her goal is to empower people through encouraging self-expression, compassion and self-love to meet their therapy goals and live happy lives.

Our Privacy Practices:
 
CONFIDENTIALITY:
 
The maintenance of strict confidentiality is essential to the practice of clinical and counseling psychology.  Your informed written consent is required for the release of any information about you (or you child) except in the following circumstances:
 
1.              I am legally obligated to inform the police if I have reason to believe a client is likely to inflict bodily harm on another person.
 
2.              If I assess a client to be at high risk of suicide or gravely disabled due to a mental illness I am legally obligated to arrange for protective hospitalization.
 
3.              I am legally obligated to report suspected child abuse to the State Office of Children’s Services (OCS).  I am also required by law to report suspected abuse of handicapped or elderly persons.
 
4.              In certain legal situations, my treatment records may be ordered to be released by a court of law.  Please discuss with me any concerns in this regard.
 
5.              When an insurance claim is filed for my services the client (or legal guardian) gives their health insurance carrier the right to make inquires regarding their mental condition.  In certain cases, I may be asked to provide details concerning a client’s presenting problem(s) and treatment needs. Insurance companies usually require a signed release from clients in order to pay benefits directly to a health service provider.
 
6.              If necessary, I may release a client’s name to a collection agency.  In these cases, no treatment related content would be disclosed.
 
7.              At Turning Point Counseling Services we use a team approach, which means I may consult with one or more clinical team members regarding your case. All team members are held to the same confidentiality outlined above.
 
In releasing confidential information, I will only disclose those details of a case that are legally or clinically necessary.
 
If you see someone leaving my office area that you recognize, please respect his or her confidentiality, as you would want them to do the same for you.
 
YOUR HEALTH INFORMATION RIGHTS:
 
Your treatment file will be kept for seven years after your last date of service.  After that time, it will be destroyed.  Although your health record is the physical property of my practice, under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA) you have the right to:
 
·      Obtain a paper copy of this notice of information on request.
·      Inspect and receive a copy of your health record.
·      Amend or supplement certain information in your health record.
·      Request communications of your health information by alternative means or at an alternative location.
·      Revoke your authorization to use or disclose health information except to the extent that action has already been taken.
 
MY RESPONSIBILITIES:
 
My practice is required to:
 
·      Maintain the privacy of your health information.
·      Provide you with this notice as to my legal duties and privacy practices with respect to the information I collect and maintain about you.
·      Abide by terms of this notice.
·      Notify you if I am unable to agree to a requested restriction.
·      Accommodate reasonable requests you may have to communicate health information by alternative means or at an alternative location.
 
I reserve that right to change my practices and to make new provisions effective for all protected health information I maintain.  Should my information or practices change, I will mail a revised notice to the address you’ve supplied.  I will not use or disclose your health information without your written authorization, except as described in this notice.  I will also discontinue to use or disclose your health information after I have received a written revocation of the authorization. 
 
FOR MORE INFORMATION OR TO REPORT A PROBLEM:
 
If you have questions or would like additional information you may speak with me.  If you believe your privacy rights have been violated, you can file a complaint with me or with the Office for Civil Rights, US Department of Health and Human Services.  There will be no retaliation for filing a complaint with either the Office of Civil Rights or myself.
