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

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
  • Requesting that anyone (myself included) who is ill, refrain from coming into the office
  • Wearing a face covering at all times except when in my office, and asking clients to do the same
  • Using an air purifier in my 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 .
