(If you are interested in becoming a new patient, please read THIS first)
I am reaching out to all my patients right now to reassure you that I will be here to help during this time of uncertainty. There are many unknowns at this point, which often cause fear and panic. I implore you to focus on what we do know. ~CDC INFO~
We know that:
- We need to wear masks
- We need to stay 6 feet apart
- My office is small
For these reasons I will not be returning to in office sessions at this time.
I hope you are all safe and healthy, and home too.
I’ve been working in the system for quite some time now, and it’s very easy to use. It’s similar to the Zoom and Skype meetings many people have moved to for work and connecting with friends and family- without retaining any information about the call, making it HIPAA compliant.
If you don’t already have an appointment scheduled, I am opening slots up to make sure everyone gets seen, you can schedule yourself through the portal or just send me an email or text and I can help.
There are a few things to do before any telehealth sessions you do schedule. I suggest giving yourself 5-10 min to get it all in place before our appointment.
1-Please sign a Telehealth consent form HERE (
This only has to be done once. )
2-Complete the Outcome Rating Scale (the thing we do on the iPad each session) HERE
You will receive a separate email from My Outcomes before the session with the username and password.
3-Login to the telehealth site and check your settings. The session will be held HERE
There’s no login information stored there, just put your first name in the box and run a pre call check to make sure your camera and mic are working.
-THEN- After the session…
4-Complete the Session Rating Scale (the thing we do on at the end of the session on the iPad) using the info from #2 above.
I want to continue to express that fear is not what I feel, nor do I think we should be afraid. Panic and fear continue to cause more issues during this crisis and take away from the resources we do have (physical, mental, and emotional).
The situation continues to be the same whether we use energy on fear or not.
If you have questions or concerns, please call, text. or email. And please stay healthy and safe. I’m here when you need me.
