COVID-19 Updates

In an effort to be responsive to the rapidly changing recommendations concerning local COVID-19 risks, we are providing services via teletherapy for forseeable future, in order to reduce exposure risk and allow for physical distancing. These can include: Phone Calls, FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom. Please let me know ahead of your appointment which option you would prefer.
