We are currently seeing patients both in-person (as of 9/7/21) and via teletherapy. Of course, we are carefully monitoring recommendations from the CDC and local departments of health, and will continue to revise our plans if necessary. Teletherapy will continue to be an option for both current and new patients, as we segue into a hybrid model of care.
New patients will be asked their preference prior to scheduling, and visits that require in-person appointments will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Current clients can communicate with their clinician to determine whether visits will be virtual or in-person.
Teletherapy has been an effective and convenient alternative to in-person appointments. Our psychologists and psychiatrists have expertise in treating adults and children, and our child specialists are trained to offer age-appropriate treatment to children and teens who are feeling particularly isolated as this unprecedented time continues. New patients are welcome.
- Cleaning protocols and ventilation in all of our offices are based on current CDC recommendations for prevention of viral transmission.
- All clinicians and administrative staff who are medically able are fully vaccinated. They will remain fully masked for now given new CDC guidelines.
- Anyone entering our offices will be asked to remain masked given the changing CDC guidelines at the moment. We will continually evaluate the need for masks in our offices.
- All patients will be encouraged to come to their appointment at the time of visit, to limit the amount of time spent in our waiting areas. Our signage will have COVID-19 symptoms listed as a reminder that anyone symptomatic should not enter the offices.
- Any person, client or clinician, will return to telehealth sessions if they experience any illness symptoms or if they or a member of their household tests positive for COVID-19.
