Your Safety is my Top Priority

To my clients and potential clients:

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and social distancing recommendations of the CDC, I will only be offering TeleHealth sessions for the time being. While I value in-person connection, I value your safety even more. Thank you for your understanding while I do my part to flatten the curve of the epidemic. I hope to resume in-person sessions soon, though I cannot predict the course of the pandemic. I will be following the lead of schools, public venues and places of worship, who are currently shutting down in-person services to curb the spread of the virus. When these places open again, I will consider offering in-person sessions.

My TeleHealth software is convenient, easy to use and HIPAA compliant. While remote therapy has its disadvantages, may people have reported that they appreciate it on cold, snowy days. Those with pets appreciate the animal-assisted therapy that automatically happens when pets jump up in their lap. I’m committed to offering the best quality service possible to help people through a difficult time, and to reduce the impact of isolation on mental health in the community.

There will be another epidemic as a result of the Coronavirus: Depression and anxiety. I encourage everyone to seek counseling during this time, since we are all social beings and nobody is immune to the strain that comes from lack of in-person contact. As a reminder for anyone who loses employment due to layoffs that will result from social distancing requirements and economic downturn: I take Medicaid. If you lose your job or your insurance, get on this website right away and apply: https://coloradopeak.secure.force.com/. I am in network with Medicaid in Denver, Boulder and Larimer county.

For those who have insurance through work, I take Cigna and United. I also offer sliding scale rates to keep therapy affordable.

Stay safe, everyone. This too shall pass.
