Default Re: Informed Consent for Psychotherapy

I just recently had a client tell me some disturbing information about her husband. He is shaking their infant daughter and I told my client that I must report this. She got visibly upset when I reminded her that in my disclosure statement, it states that this is what I need to do and she stated that she didn't know it said that. I clearly went through my disclosure statement with her and she signed it saying that she understood. She wants to discontinue our therapeautic relationship because I am going to report this incident. What are my LEGAL obligations. What does the law state about what my responsibilities are and where do I go to access that law? I live in Montana.
Thanks for your help!
