We have modified the way we practice in many ways to ensure the safety of our clients:  

  1. Mandatory Masks that cover mouth and nose for all clients and practitioners indoors from entry to exit of the facility 
  2. Clients are encouraged to wait in their cars until the practitioner is ready for their appointment and called upon
  3. Temperature of all clients is measured and those not within range will be turned away and asked to come back another time
  4. COVID form completion required by all clients
  5. Virtual Services are offered when possible (e.g. psychological, and physicians)
