Licensed Mental Health Counselors are Exempt from Reporting Mandates of NY SAFE Act

Don't want to add to the risk of the government taking your guns, but you or a family member need(s) confidential services from a mental health professional? Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHCs) are exempt from reporting requirements in the NY SAFE Act, allowing broader privacy protection for persons receiving such services than when provided by other licensed healthcare providers [see NY Mental Hygiene Law § 9.46]. Most insurances are accepted. Call 845-513-5002 to schedule an appointment.
