COVID-19 Office Policies

Office Safety Precautions in Effect During the Pandemic

Until the COVID-19 pandemic has passed, I am conducting most therapy sessions by telehealth through secure video services. I am only seeing clients in my office on a limited basis one day a week (Thursday). The below office polices detail what I am doing to protect the health of my clients and their families, as well as myself and my family, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In my office, I am taking the following precautions to protect clients and help slow the spread of the COVID-19. The following office policies are currently in place and will remain in place until it is deemed safe to return to normal practices.

  • All clients must sign an informed consent for in-person sessions during the COVID-19 pandemic. (Click Here to View the Informed Consent)
  • I am asking clients to wait in their cars or outside until I call them when I am ready to begin the appointment unless health or other reasons prevent this. If you must wait in the waiting room, please social distance while there.
  • We ask that no more than two people are in the waiting room at a time to allow for social distancing.
  • I ask that you leave the office and waiting area as soon as the appointment has finished.
  • I will wear a mask while at the office and require all my clients to do so as well. .
  • I will maintain social distancing at the office.
  • Restroom soap dispensers are maintained and everyone is encouraged to wash their hands.
  • Hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol is available in the waiting room.
  • Credit card pads, pens, and other areas that are commonly touched are thoroughly sanitized after each use.
  • Shaking hands or other forms of touching is not permitted.
  • Tissues and trash bins are easily accessed. Trash is disposed of on a frequent basis.
  • Common areas are thoroughly disinfected through the day and at the end of each day.
  • Disinfectant spray is used in sitting areas between each appointment.
