Notice to Clients
Beginning Monday, 3/23, the office will be closed temporarily and to ensure that there is limited disruption in your mental health care, I will be offering Telehealth sessions at your usual appointment time. Keep in mind that this format of therapy will be temporary as the Coronavirus will one day pass. To prepare for your session, you will need to find a quiet area (if possible) where you feel comfortable. If necessary, use headphones that will help with reducing noise and distractions.
I also recognize that your schedule may look different now that we are all encouraged to limit travel; please let me know if you would prefer a new appointment time. To attend a virtual video session, please use the following link at the time of your appointment:

Clients whose insurance is Anthem, BCBS, United Healthcare, Oxford, Connecticare, Cigna and Magellan; please contact your insurance company to inquire if Telehealth is a covered benefit. Copayments and deductible payments may be made at the end of each session via the doxy.me Telehealth platform.
