Virtual Sessions due to COVID-19
Dear Current or Future Clients,
I know that each day we wake up to news updates and an ever-growing list of changes we are making in our lives. It can bring up a lot of fear, anxiety, and even grief as plans are canceled, social distancing happens, and daily routines are completely shifted. I truly value our relationship and have developed a plan so that we can continue during this time. I want to be a place of support through what you are going through.
As of today, all sessions will be moved to virtual sessions. We will no longer meet in my office. This is a temporary measure as the COVID-19 will one day pass. We have a few options moving forward based on your needs, which are secure and encrypted. You can utilize video sessions or phone sessions. I am happy to discuss the option that is best for you.
Research shows that virtual sessions are an effective form of psychotherapy. There are a few differences from what you experience in my office. You will need to find a space, if possible, that is quiet and where you feel comfortable to share. If you have a headset that will also help with reducing noise and distraction. Many people prefer video as we can see each other’s faces and expressions.
I recognize that your schedule may look different, as does mine. While this is temporary, I want to be as flexible as possible as I know this a crucial time for all of us to maintain some sense of normalcy, to get support when we are isolated and to continue working on our strengths to take care of our mental well-being.
Please know, I am also doing things to care for myself so that I can be there for you fully. If you would like to speak about the options or develop a plan to meet your needs, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
