COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Announcement

I hope this note finds each of you healthy, calm, and collected!  Please remember to stay informed from reliable sources (such as the CDC and State of Colorado) and to practice good self care, including limiting your exposure to the relentless media coverage of the pandemic and boosting your immune system.  If you have children, I encourage you to talk with them about the Coronavirus.

Now that local schools have been temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) social distancing measures, I will be seeing clients from 4pm to 9pm on Mondays through Fridays (I've added Wednesdays), and from 10am to 9pm on Saturdays, until further notice. 

For the next two weeks at a minimum, I plan to have all sessions via telehealth (secure video conference or telephone). At the end of two weeks, I will consider whether to extend this policy temporarily or return to in-person sessions.  I intend to return to in-person visits when the pandemic situation has abated.

I have added an option to schedule a 25-minute session via telehealth.  This option is now available on the online scheduling platform for a cost of $30.  This option provides a convenient "check-in" during the social distancing measures, in spite of the pandemic's impact on our schedules of: increased childcare demands, workplace changes, and impacts to personal finances.  This shorter option will also give you the opportunity to see whether telehealth will work for you.  Telehealth appointment lengths of 50-minutes and 75-minutes remain options, as well. 

In order to participate via video conference, you will need reliable access to the internet, a computer with camera and microphone, and a completely private space where you can participate without interruption.  If you prefer to meet via telephone, you will need phone reception, and a completely private space where you can participate without interruption.  At your designated appointment time, I will send you a link to connect to the secure, HIPAA compliant video platform or I will call you at the telephone number I have on file for you.

Let's work together to stay calm, be wise, and nurture ourselves and others well through this unusual circumstance. As always, I am here for you, and I look forward to seeing you in-person as soon as the viral threat has passed.
