3/15/2020 – After pouring over articles and consulting with colleagues – and in light of things heating up over the past 48 hours with regards to COVID-19 – I have decided to move all sessions to phone and telehealth.
I am no longer offering in-office sessions at this time.
When the Powers That Be say we’re safe to meet face-to-face I will re-open the office for sessions, but for now I want to do all that I can to slow the spread and be mindful of harming the more vulnerable of us in our community.
If you’re interested in reading just a couple of the articles that helped me make my decision, I’ve listed them at the bottom of this page.
A quick reminder about who can do online counseling in Texas:
- Counseling is available to anyone who is anywhere currently in Texas or is a Texas resident.
- For example, if you live in Virginia, but are in Dallas we can do an online session while you’re there. Likewise, if you live in Houston, but are visiting Mexico, we can do a session while you’re in Mexico. Or lastly, as in our case currently, if it’s ill-advised to be in the office together and you’re in Austin, we can do telehealth sessions.
Telehealth sessions (aka video session) – for Individuals and Couples
All you need is a smartphone or a computer with a camera and a mic. That’s it!
I will set our meeting place for my “virtual office” and you will be sent a link before our session. I’ve been using this feature since January 1st and it’s been extremely reliable and easy to use. I’m diggin’ it.
