I am writing to remind my clients and potential future clients that I am happy to provide mental health services via phone or online video conference (VSee or Google Meet). If you are concerned about going out, that doesn’t mean treatment needs to be postponed. Anxiety is running high for many right now. If you are ill of course remote services are best until you are well again. If you are well but too nervous to go out, let’s get you set up online until that changes.
Psychotherapy is still considered both medical and essential. Of course discretion and minimization of face to face contact is still recommended.
We are taking recommended precautions of:
-disinfecting surfaces every 2 hours,
-providing Kleenex and disposal,
-recommend you space out 6 feet in waiting room (balcony available if needed) and in sessions
-cough into elbows and tissues
-avoid handshakes, hugs, and high fives in office
-Stay home if you are symptomatic
-Consider phone or online options for sessions if you prefer that to in office
-The option of phone and online sessions has greatly reduced office traffic, so in office risks are dramatically less than norm.
-and as always, 20+ seconds of hand washing with soap frequently (hourly by therapist)
