In light of covid-19


We are living in the midst of a very different and difficult season, so my hope is to provide as much consistency, stability and certainty as possible.  Below are several ways that we can continue working together.

Therapy Sessions

In-Person Sessions

As of today (10/06/2020), I am currently still seeing clients in my office.  In addition to my routine care and cleaning, I'm taking extra precautions to keep my office space healthy and safe:

  • Daily sanitizing of well-used objects and parts of my office
  • Keeping a safe distance from clients and declining any handshakes or physical touch
  • Opening and closing of doors so that clients don't have to do so
  • Our office building has cleaning staff regularly sanitizing door handles and common spaces, throughout the day
  • Requesting that clients who are ill in any way, refrain from coming into the office 

Telehealth Sessions

If clients do not feel comfortable coming into the office, we have two "telehealth" (remote therapy) options:

  • We can conduct our therapy session over the phone.  This can also be a conference call if more than one client is part of the session.
  • We can conduct our therapy session via video conference.  I use a secure video platform called Doxy.me .
