While we acknowledge the desire for many people to “return to normal,” out of an abundance of caution for the safety of our staff and clients, their families, and the safety of our broader community, office sessions continue to be suspended at this time and we are continuing to provide services only via telehealth. We regret that some of our services are limited or unavailable as a result of continuing the practice of telehealth. At present, there is no timeline as to when the office will reopen for in-person office sessions and the resumption of the full range of ours services. We continue to monitor the outbreak of the pandemic, the availability of effective treatments and/or prevention methods, and information from the medical and scientific community, and will reopen once we are confidently satisfied that it is safe to do so. We thank you for your understanding and will make additional updates as they become available.

We are continuing to provide services through a virtual HIPPA compliant and secure telehealth program, and we are not currently providing on-site office sessions at this time. Due to this necessary but temporary practice change our ability to provide some services is limited. We apologize in advance for this. We are continuing to monitor the situation and the advice of health officials, and we will return to on-site office sessions when it is safe to do so.

Effective Monday, March 23, Inner Awakening Counseling and Consultation will be discontinuing therapy sessions at the office and will being providing all of our therapy sessions virtually (telehealth). This change will last indefinitely during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue monitoring the situation and the advice of health officials, and we will return to in-person sessions in the office when it is safe to do so. Our therapists will be contacting each of their clients individually ahead of their sessions to provide additional information and to answer questions.

Inner Awakening Counseling and Consultation will be temporarily suspending admission of new clients until April 18, 2020. This step is aimed at helping us balance the evolving concerns of this illness (COVID-19) while trying to meet the needs of our existing clients in the safest and most ethical way possible within the resources we have available. Although we know there are individuals in our community in need of mental health care, it is our opinion that it would be unprofessional, unethical, and unsafe to continue to admit new clients in the midst of this health crisis when we are unsure of the ongoing availability of our staff and other resources. We will continue to monitor this situation and make announcements when changes are made. In the meantime, individuals who are experiencing a crisis or mental health emergency should go to the nearest emergency room or call 911. Additionally-

OFFICIAL STATEMENT ON COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Inner Awakening Counseling and Consultation is closely monitoring the evolving developments around the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In order to keep our clients, staff, and community safe and healthy we intend to follow recommendations of local, state, and national health officials regarding staying open and operating. At this time, Inner Awakening Counseling and Consultation will remain open and providing services to our clients unless we are directed to do something differently by health officials. Should the situation change in the future, you will be contacted directly by your therapist.
What we are doing to help manage the potential for spreading the illness in our office:
Therapists are washing and sanitizing their hands between each client, and clients are being asked to sanitize their hands upon arrival to their therapist’s office.
High-use surface area (eg- doorknobs, bathroom key, chairs) are being disinfected throughout the day.
We are asking that clients with any symptoms of illness to please stay home and reschedule. Clients who arrive with symptoms will be asked to go home.
Physical contact between therapists and clients should be avoided (eg- handshakes, hugging).
We are continuing to monitor this evolving situation and will make updates as needed.
