There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.
- C.S. Lewis
Given the ongoing concerns related to the transmission of COVID-19 (coronavirus), and in the interest of implementing responsible practices and policies for our workplace, and most especially the safety and welfare of our clients and therapists, we chose to institute Telehealth-only appointments beginning Monday, March 16, 2020. This policy will remain in effect at least through May 10, 2020.
Beginning May 11, 2020, we plan to begin a measured return to in-office visits based on each therapist's readiness to resume face-to-face therapy. Please consider your own readiness for in-office therapy and discuss this with your therapist.
These measures require some change and adjustment on all sides, and we hope you will take some time to consider the ramifications and discuss this temporary change with your therapist. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience, and we are also thankful that we have this option available.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is a secure, HIPAA-compliant technology that assures your privacy and confidentiality and offers the flexibility to connect anywhere there is an internet connection and appropriate technology (e.g., computer, laptop, tablet, cell phone, etc.).
How Will This Work?
At the time/date of your scheduled appointment, your therapist will send you a link (via email or text) to a Virtual Waiting Room. When you enter, you will be asked to provide your name and, once your therapist sees you are in the Virtual Waiting Room, you will be connected for your virtual session.
Please contact your therapist or our office if you have any questions.
We truly hope and pray that your experiences and disruptions will be minimal as we all work together through this difficult time.
