When and Why I Refer Clients To Other Therapists

I don’t work with clients whom I believe I cannot help. If I conclude that I am ineffective or not making reasonable progress with a client and that additional services are required, I will end treatment. Also, I don’t work with clients who reject treatment recommendations. Depending upon the circumstances, I may be ethically prohibited from working with clients in these situations. In each case, I will refer the client to a program or professional I think can better meet the client’s needs.
