In person visits in the Counseling Center
You will get a brief health screening and temperature reading upon entering the building and you will be required to wear a face covering. You will not be allowed to bring anyone with you to your appointment. You and your therapist will sit 6 feet apart in a spacious office and your therapist will be wearing a face covering as well.
Tele therapy visits
You will get a notification by email and text of your appointment and instructions on how to log in to the patient portal. You may ask for a phone session if that is your preference.
You will receive intake questions in an email to complete prior to your appointment for both in person and tele therapy assessment appointments. Thank you for taking the time to complete those forms so we have the information we need to best take care of you.
