Dear clients and those seeking therapy:
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic it is my goal to provide continuity of care in the safest and most effective ways I can. I am now offering both in-office and telehealth sessions. Scheduling for both modalities can be done through my Client Portal. Please note that the 24-hour cancelation policy still applies.
I am fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and am offering in-person sessions to clients who are also fully vaccinated. I have configured my office furniture to allow approximately 8’ of space between us and I have an air filter that sits in the middle of the room and runs continuously. I use lysol spray to disinfect between sessions.
Wearing a mask may be necessary while in the common areas of my building; please follow state/county guidance on indoor mask requirements. Masks are not necessary within my office as long as we both agree that this is a reasonably safe choice. If one of us is not feeling well or has had a possible COVID exposure I would request that we either switch to telehealth or wear masks in session. We can discuss it to make a sensible decision together.
Telehealth sessions are secure video appointments which I conduct from my office. I have found that we can do good quality work together via telehealth sessions. Research shows that telehealth can be just as effective as in-person appointments, and we can continue your care without interruption. Before our first telehealth appointment I will ask you to sign a Consent for Telehealth Services through the Client Portal.
If you have any questions, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Karen Muehl, Ph.D.
