We want to value everyone’s concerns in this time of COVID-19. To help with this, if you feel sick, have been recently exposed, or have a concern of meeting at our office, we want you to know that we offer the option of web-based (telehealth) counseling sessions. Ideally, we like to meet our clients for the first session in person, but these are unique times. We have a private office space and our own separate entrance, with only 4 - 6 people in the office at one time. We take time to wipe down touchable surfaces (knobs, seating, etc.) in between sessions. We are also willing to wear masks or face shields upon request during your session. We will still plan on being available for ‘in person’ sessions in our office space.
We build 'real connections' - solid and safe connections between you two that will last your whole life!
