COVID-19 NOTICE:  As of July 27, 2020, we will resume seeing people only via telehealth(video conferencing) due to the rising numbers of COVID cases in our area.

HOWEVER, if you are unable to meet online please speak with your therapist about your options.

Here are the guidelines we will follow if seeing people in the office:

  1. PLEASE WAIT IN YOUR CAR.  Your therapist will call or text you when they are ready to see you and meet you at the door. We will not permit people to wait in the lobby during this season. Please do not show to your appointment more than 5-10 minutes early to reduce your wait time in your vehicle. 

  2. We are requesting that you wear a face-covering/mask when you come into the building.  You will be able to remove the mask when we start the session.

  3. We will provide hand sanitizer and masks should you need them.

  4. IF YOU DO NOT FEEL WELL OR HAVE BEEN SICK, DO NOT COME TO THE OFFICE! We will meet with you by video conferencing.

Your health and safety is our primary concern.  As was mentioned, if you would prefer to meet online, that option is still there for you.  Your therapist will provide you with the links and instructions for meeting online as we have been doing.

If you are meeting with your therapist online, you will still meet at your regularly scheduled time online using a video link that will be sent to you by your therapist. (Access your therapist's virtual waiting room here)  Although not quite the same as meeting in person, you can still have effective and meaningful meetings using this method.

Warm regards,

Kingsport Counseling Associates, PLLC
