COVID-19 Update. Perspectives remains open to provide services to clients. To protect clients, staff, and clinicians, we are providing therapy primarily through telehealth. Telehealth has been shown to be an effective means of conducting therapy, and most insurances continue to cover this service.
With the easing of state restrictions, we are also allowing a limited number of clients for in-person sessions. As conditions in the state change, we will increase or decrease the number of in-person sessions available as needed. If you prefer in-person sessions, we ask that you consider the following before coming into the office:
- Do you have contact with anyone in a high-risk group?
- Is there a possible or known chance that you have been exposed to someone who may have COVID-19?
- Are you exhibiting any symptoms of illness?
- Have you been vaccinated?
To ensure the safety of all, we are following all guidelines provided by the State of Michigan and the CDC. This includes, but is not limited to, sanitizing offices between clients, increased sanitization of public areas, social distancing, limiting the number of people in the office, and screening employees daily for illness. We continue to require clients to wear masks while in the office and to complete a screening prior to the start of the appointment. All of these procedures have been put in place to protect everyone who enters our office. And, while we understand that some may not agree with our procedures, we ask that you respect them. If you are uncomfortable with our safety measures, you are welcome to schedule appointments via telehealth. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
