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 are covering this service. With the easing of state restrictions, we are also allowing a limited number of clients for in-office sessions. Priority will be given to those who are unable to do telehealth or who have issues for which telehealth is contraindicated. As conditions in the state change, we will increase or decrease the number of in-office sessions available as needed.
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 are also requiring clients to wear masks in public areas 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.
If you or anyone you know is concerned, stressed, or worried about coronavirus and its impact, please feel free to call us. We strive to offer services to meet your needs, whether it is participating in one or two sessions to voice your thoughts and receive practical advice on how to cope during this time, or establishing longer-term treatment to meet your goals.
