I have made the decision to resume in-person services on July 14, 2020.
Please note that I will continue to offer services via teletherapy, and you continue
to have the option to meet virtually. Also please note that should officials enact
another "stay-at-home" order or
if I become aware of any exposure in my office, I  
will revert to exclusively doing teletherapy sessions.
Please do let me know if you would like to discuss coming in.
When I re-open for in-person sessions, I am taking the following precautions:

        I have purchased an air purifier with CADR (clean air delivery rate) of 360,
which means that it circulates and cleans the air in my office at least 5 times per
hour. (The 360 technically means that it can clean the air in a room that is 360
square feet 5 times in one hour, and my office is less than half that size.)

        I will continue to stagger my appointments so clients can come directly in to
my office instead of waiting in the lobby. If I am running late (or you are running
early), I will have a system for you to check in then wait in your car.

        I will be cleaning all high-touch surfaces between sessions, and will have hand
sanitizer available in my office.  There are several options for hand washing as well,
and I will make sure that hand soap stays stocked. Use of masks or face shields
during session is strongly encouraged. I will have a very limited number of masks
available, so please bring your own if possible. I will also have face shields available,
and will sanitize them between use, if you prefer that option. The face shields belong
to me, and will remain in my office.  

        If you become aware that you have been exposed to COVID19 and/or develop
symptoms, please do not come for your scheduled appointment. As long as you
communicated with me, any no show/late cancellation fees in this situation will be

      As I continue to think through this process and seek wise counsel, I may add
additional precautions.  Additionally, I am asking that clients who do choose to
come for in-person sessions during the pandemic sign an informed consent
acknowledging the risks.
Here is the link that form for your perusal.
Thanks for being patient during this season.
Do let me know how I can support your mental wellbeing and stay healthy!
