Providing therapy in a safe and confidential space.
While we are all dealing with the current Covid-19 health crisis, I continue to stay up-to-date with the everchanging nature of this pandemic and the recommendations for health professionals. My commitment is to support and treat my clients in a safe, consistent, and effective manner. I am also committed to my role and responsibilities during these challenging times. I am committed to following all guidelines that are presented in order to provide a safe space for myself, clients and their families, and the community as a whole.
I have chosen to continue all sessions in a Telehealth format which will give you the option to choose between video or phone sessions until it is deemed safe to return to in-person sessions within the office.
While I will continue to monitor the situation and follow the recommendations of how to handle the Covid-19 situation, please know that it is my intention to return to in-person sessions as soon as it is considered safe.
I am using a user friendly, HIPPA-compliant platform, that is widely used by many therapists for video appointments. Feedback has been positive and my clients find online sessions to be very convenient and effective.
If you are interested in becoming a new client, please contact me to schedule an appointment. I would be happy to answer your questions regarding telehealth and to support you as you start therapy.
Here are a few tips that will help you with Telehealth sessions:
Many if not all of my clients have found that “virtual” or phone sessions are easy and highly effective as well as convenient.
Even if you are not computer savvy or are nervous about how to work with new technology, I will assist with making the transition to online therapy as smooth as possible.
Some clients have concerns about finding quiet, private space for online therapy, especially with family members or housemates being homebound. There are several effective strategies including finding a quiet place and/or using a sound machine/white noise while at home, and since you are able to conduct your session on your smartphone you can connect from anywhere. Clients have found it easy to meet from their car in the driveway, or at a park if that is convenient. Finding a private space for your appointment will help ensure a successful therapy session.
I conduct all online/phone sessions in a confidential and quiet space. I continue to support you in therapy with the commitment and professionalism I always have.
