Due to COVID-19 and various infectious diseases, we require that clients who experience symptoms of physical illness to use telehealth. If your session is occurring on-site, you must wear a protective face mask.
We understand there is a lot of concern about COVID-19, and we are working diligently on ways to support you during these times. We are often available for same-day appointments in the instance you are experiencing a non-emergency crisis, or your symptoms worsen, and you need treatment prior to your next scheduled appointment. Again, in order to better serve you and prevent an interruption in treatment, we have made our team available to serve you through our telehealth platform.
