TELEHEALTH NOTICE!WE'RE TEMPORARILY MOVING TO TELEHEALTH COUNSELING, AFTER THANKSGIVING!

We continue to stay committed to the mental, emotional, and physical safety and well-being of all of our clients and the community at large. To that end, we will be temporarily closing the physical office and offering counseling sessions through TELEHEALTH ONLY, starting immediately after Thanksgiving and continuing at least through December 31st. This is not likely to change the dates or times of your appointments.

Because the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase and hospital beds continue to become harder and harder to find for COVID patients, we are implementing this safety measure for the two weeks after Thanksgiving and will assess after the two week period ends. It is also highly likely that we will move to telehealth again at Christmas, if not before.
