THERE ARE CHANGES TO MY PRACTICE AS A RESULT OF CORONAVIRUS

If you are a new client, or are returning after 6 month or longer absence, please call 585.358.0258 to confirm availability before booking an appointment.

Important COVID-19 Information

I am suspending in-person sessions as of 12/5/21. Teletherapy continues to be available.

Read the following before booking an appointment (updated 11/30/21):

Based on the current course of COVID-19, including factors such as the case number and test positivity rates in our community, states of emergencies on both the county and state level, and abundant caution regarding the Omicron variant, I have made the difficult decision to suspend in-person sessions as of 12/5/21. Any sessions currently booked through this time will be honored, but in line with booking policy, sessions which are already booked after 12/1/21 will be asked to re-book as teletherapy or cancel. Scheduling of in-person sessions will not be possible as of 11/1/21.

 

Please note that as a private entity I am able to set my own conditions for clients and they may not match CDC guidelines or other ideologies. I realize people have different views on COVID-19. I am trying my best to balance non-partisanship with protection of people's health. I ask that clients refrain from trying to persuade me to change my mind, providing me "alternate viewpoints," asking me for special accommodations, or otherwise trying to alter this course. Please know that I don't like this any more than I imagine my clients do and will resume in-person sessions as soon as possible.

Regarding Teletherapy:

 

I have established a Teletherapy presence on a fully HIPAA compliant platform and will be offering this service to my clients. You can choose this as an option when booking your appointment. Access is possible from a Windows or Mac computer, or iOS and Android devices. There is no special software required, just a webcam, microphone, and web browser (a recent release of Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari). You will receive instructions in your appointment confirmation email. Please understand that even under the best of circumstances, there may be technical problems with Teletherapy that are beyond my control, which may affect the quality or continuity of your session. If serious enough, these difficulties may require rescheduling your appointment.  You will not be charged for a replacement session.

 

Please understand that I may perform teletherapy sessions from my home.  While this will not affect your privacy or expose the content of our session, there may be occasional background noise from the environment.  I make every endeavor to minimize and insulate from this noise but it is not possible for me to ensure its complete elimination.
