I am returning to the office for some in-person sessions October 5, 2020. I continue to reevaluate as insurance companies continue to allow for telehealth services to be reimbursed. Please contact me if questions/concerns.
The below precautions will be taken to protect my clients and help slow the spread of COVID-19. I ask for your participation to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Clients seen in person will be asked to sign a specific consent form acknowledging the risks of meeting in-person during this pandemic.
