finding reliable medical practitioners

Confidentiality at 13? I have never heard of this. Wow.

I think the therapist still should be able to (and has an obligation to) let you know how your daughter is doing. Can your daughter sign off a HIPAA form (or whatever) allowing you to discuss her case with the therapist? Or maybe if you have an appointment with all three of you together with the therapist, your daughter would willingly discussing her issues in front of you.

Can you make a separate appointment or phone the therapist to discuss the confidentiality situation? As her parents, I think you have a right to know how your daughter is doing and I think this could be done without the therapist completely spilling all the beans and breaching confidence. Your daughter is a minor child and you are her parents. It is your job to care for her and keep her safe, and I can't understand how you are supposed to do this if you don't know what is going on? I am no lawyer but wow, that sounds strange.
