May 24, 2021 COVID Update ****​

  • Due to COVID19 physical distancing orders, teletherapy is recommended until a county has achieved Orange or lower tier status. As a result, starting MAY 18, office visits without masks will be available to any fully vaccinated clients and with masks if you have not received a COVID19 vaccination. 
     

  • Because of my small office space in Bishop, in-person clients must wear a mask if you have a higher risk of contracting COVID19 even if you have been vaccinated. While vaccination reduces our risk of getting seriously ill, until the research confirms we cannot continue to spread the virus to other, we all need to do our part to protect our community. 

    Higher risk includes but is not limited to:

    • attending gatherings with unvaccinated people, particularly unvaccinated people from multiple households and indoor gatherings;

    • frequent close contact with someone who frequently disregards public health guidelines, including relatives, friends, and co-workers; 

    • attending medium or large gatherings regardless of vaccination status;

    • frequent in-door dining or extended periods in public indoor spaces, particularly if masks can't be worn (such as eating and drinking) or social distancing could not be maintained; and

    • travel on public transit such as airplanes, trains, cruise ships, and buses. Please see CDC guidelines here.
       

  • Teletherapy is available to all patients through my HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform Doxy.me.
     

  • Teletherapy must be used if you or I have any symptoms of illness or a fever, if you or I have been possibly exposed to the virus through travel or visiting people who may have been lax in physical distancing or mask-wearing, or any other factors that may put you or I at risk of being an a-symptomatic spreader.
     

  • Masks must be worn in public areas of the office including hallways and waiting area.
     

  • Hand sanitizer or hand washing is available in the office.
     

  • Do not arrive more than 5 minutes ahead of your appointment to minimize the number of people in the waiting area.
