**COVID-19 Update**- During these uncertain times, I have converted my entire practice to telehealth, either telephonic or video conferencing sessions. While I don't know exactly when I will return to the office to provide face-to-face sessions again, I absolutely plan on doing so when telehealth/work from home recommendations change.
Regarding accepting new clients: My ability to accept new clients is fluid and changes from week to week. With everything currently being unusual, I haven't been as good about updating this website to reflect whether I am accepting new clients that week or not. So, if you are interested in therapy with me, please contact me via email or phone to check my availability.
Regarding telehealth, some people have expressed a little reluctance about getting therapy via video sessions and worried about their privacy while engaging in these sessions from home, which I completely understand. The platform I am using is HIPAA compliant and can be joined either by using a computer or your smart phone. With the smart phone being an option, clients have been able to achieve privacy within their home (in the garage in their car or in a home office) or not far from home (in a parking lot) during their sessions. While video sessions can initially feel awkward, most people say they aren't too bad, easy to get used to, effective, and similar to FaceTime or Skype, which most of us do to connect with a friend or a family member living out of state or country. Also, most big insurance companies have already approved video/phone sessions during this pandemic in order to provide mental health support and care in a safe manner.
People often make a commitment to change when the cost of living an unhappy life has become too high. In addition, they make these commitments with the best intentions in mind as well as the desire for a successful outcome.
It is by providing therapy for 20 years to a variety of clientele with an assortment of issues that I have discovered people sometimes need the support of therapy to achieve the results they desire. Therapy can help provide motivation, education, and support toward this end.
The decision to change can be often be complex and difficult and one which I realize is a big step toward health. In order to help ease some of the normal anxiety associated with starting therapy, I invite you to visit the other pages in my website in order to learn more about me. If you find that you have questions or just want to speak with me to see if I would be a good fit, please call me at (303) 588-2087 or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
