The counseling team at Garret Counseling now offers online counseling services (commonly referred to as telehealth or teletherapy). Online counseling is a real-time live video interaction with your counselor and is an excellent option for those who prefer to have the care of a counselor form the safety and security of their own space.
Our counselors will be keeping their full schedules throughout the days ahead and connecting with you in a new way as we face this Coronavirus challenge together. Our fantastic team has been working very hard to help with this transition to make sure no one is missed in this shuffle. We also are opening our schedules even further to provide support to new clients who may need us as well.
If you have specific concerns about your care or doing online counseling, please connect with your counselor for further discussion. We will do our best to continue providing support to you around these rapid adjustments.
We are finding great success in using online counseling to continue working with our clients in this challenging time, including the services we provide to children (please see below for more details on child-centered and play therapy). Online counseling is an excellent option even outside of the Coronavirus adjustments.
If you are a current client and are interested in Online Counseling then you can discuss it with your current counselor. If you are a new client, then please reach out to us to get more information:
We understand that depending on the age of your child online therapy may be more challenging. One strategy that is helpful is to have a check-in with the child, plus having a parent portion of the session for support for our parents. We know parents can use all the support they can get during this stressful time, and we know that our kids have lots of questions and worry about the Coronavirus. We can help!
Creativity will be important as we move forward, and our play therapists are up to the challenge! Our director, Ashley Garrett, is an international speaker in the field of mental health and play therapy and has brought her expertise to the area of online counseling. Rest assured that your family will have the best mental health care, no matter if you come to the office or see your counselor via our online format.
