**Effective June 1st, 2020***
The health and well-being of our employees and clients remains our top priority. We want to share with you some of the adjustments that we have made to our clinic operations. This is out of an abundance of caution for our staff, clients, and our community. We have made many internal changes to our clinic procedures, but we wanted to share the ones that will affect you at your session.
Please come to your appointment alone. We will not accommodate extra family members, children, or friends. If they come with you, they will need to wait outside.
Clients will be required to wear a mask in common areas of the clinic (all staff members will be required to wear a mask within common areas as well). If you do not have a mask, we will provide you one.
Please come at your appointment time, not early. When you arrive at the clinic, please wait outside in the vestibule, your therapist will come collect you when it's time to come inside. This will eliminate extra people in the clinic at one time and allow us to clean in between clients. When you enter the vestibule, please don on your mask. If you do not have one, the therapist will provide you one prior to entering the clinic. The therapist will take your temperature with an infrared touch-free thermometer. We ask that you use hand sanitizer provided or wash your hands in the restroom.
As much as possible, maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from other clients and employees when walking through the clinic.
Lastly, but most importantly, if you are:
-have been around anyone sick in the last 14 days
-have a fever of 100 degrees F or above in the last 14 days
-have tested positive or been exposed to anyone that has tested positive in the last 14 days
-have allergies and cannot control your sneezing
STAY HOME. Call the clinic to cancel your appointment. We are not taking this lightly. We will be taking our temperature at the beginning of each day and expect you to do the same. We have kids, families, other clients in the clinic that we are trying to keep safe.
We sincerely appreciate your support. This situation has certainly brought on some challenges, but we are determined to rise to the occasion with a positive attitude and a high level of professionalism. As these circumstances are ever changing, they will require our constant attention and re-evaluation. We ask that you please be patient with us as we make the necessary adjustments.
Aspen Family Counseling is also able to provide services through telehealth. The telehealth platform is HIPAA compliant, is not recorded, and is confidential. Sessions will be conducted similarly to face-to-face therapy sessions. To utilize this service, you will need to have reliable access to the internet through a computer, tablet, or smart phone that has a camera for video viewing, and a microphone for audio feed. Patients will need to supply us with their email, and will be sent a consent form for telehealth participation. You will be supplied with information on how to access your therapist’s “waiting room.” When you are in queue for your session, your therapist will access you for your appointment.
Your health and the health of our staff is better maintained by the use of telehealth. We strongly recommend that you use this service during the current crisis. Do not hesitate to call the office with questions.
Aspen Family Counseling is a unique, full-service, outpatient community resource specializing in comprehensive consultation, evaluation and psychotherapy for families, individuals, schools, and businesses.
Therapy serves as a positive medium which allows people to develop a deeper understanding of themselves in our increasingly complex world, so that they may make productive decisions which lead to their own personal happiness.
We hope to help you with your counseling needs.
