Service in Times of COVID-19

As you know we are being asked to contribute to "flatten the curve" by reducing the spread of the virus through social distancing. In keeping with recommendations from the Federal and Provincial Governments and the Ontario Ministry of Health, I am returning to see clients in office; however, there are restrictions and important processes to be aware of before your next visit.

Prior to your next visit you will receive a copy of the professional office approach to managing COVID-19, my consent form that reflects the risks of in-office sessions, and a screening tool to guide you in determining if you should proceed with an in-office session. Should you have any questions about the forms, please reach out through email, phone, or text and we can discuss your concerns. 

 

These are challenging times for all of us and I am committed to the ongoing service of my clients. I will continue to offer Video Therapy through REACTS.com as a secure and effective alternative to in office sessions. REACTS is a secure and private platform that meets the Provincial requirements (PHIPPA legislation) that protect your personal health information. It requires you to have internet access, a microphone, and a webcam. You can access the platform, once signed up, through you computer browser (Chrome), a tablet, or a smartphone.  

If you are uncomfortable with this format and require service, I am able to provide telephone sessions also. Please call or email me with any questions.
