Covid-19 Update: January 2021

Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, here are a few notes on how our staff have been continuing to meet with clients.

Telehealth/Teletherapy: Each of our staff uses HIPAA-compliant technology, including phone and teleconferencing software, to meet with clients virtually. We will be offering most services this way for as long as this is being recommended.

Most insurance companies are covering teletherapy the same as they would in-person meetings. Only Dr. Matthews is working with insurance companies at this time, but insurance reimbursement may be available for services by our other providers. We will provide statements of services on a monthly basis if you wish to submit claims to your insurance.

Beyond the pandemic, staff may continue to utilize teletherapy:

  • for clients who do not feel comfortable coming into the office,
  • for those who may not live in the area,
  • and as an adjunct to in-person therapy if you cannot make it to the office for another reason.

In-person therapy: Some therapists may be offering in-person sessions at this time, keeping in mind social distancing, wearing of masks, and frequent disinfecting of the office. Please check with individual providers for availability.
