COVID-19 UPDATES

EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MARCH 30TH-MAY 30TH (OR LONGER)

All sessions are being offered through video.Due to COVID-19, all sessions are being offered as video sessions (aka “distance therapy”).  Most insurance plans have expanded their coverage to include ‘teletherapy’ as a covered mental health benefit for emergency use during COVID-19. Below are summaries and links to press updates from our in-netwok insurance companies. Please note that these benefits are NOT guaranteed and we encourage all prospective and current clients to call about their benefits. These policies keep changing faster than we can keep up with!

 

We are looking forward to "seeing" you soon!
