Our office has instituted policies recommended to help eliminate or minimize the risk of transmitting the Coronavirus.
We are asking patients and staff NOT to come to the office if they don't feel well and have any of the following symptoms:
SHORTNESS OF BREATH;

NO HAND SHAKES
Instead of sitting in our waiting room we suggest waiting in the parking lot and texting your therapist you have arrived. Your therapist will reply to your text when he/she is avaiable to see you.
If you do choose to sit in the waiting room we are taking every precaution we can think of to keep it as safe as possible. For example,
We wipe down the waiting room, door handles, and all surfaces in the front office and in the therapy offices frequently during the day with disinfectants.
We are washing hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap and water.
Please be advised that in many cases we are able to conduct therapy sessions via telehealth (either video-conferencing or telephone) without the patient having to come to the office. If you are interested please contact our office to see if this option is available for the services you are receiving.
We charge telehealth services at the identical rate as a normal face-to-face appointment. You always have the option of choosing to self pay for this service if your insurance carrier does not cover telehealth services.
We have confirmed that the following insurances are currently covering telehealth services:
