A Message from the staff & board of Nicola Family Therapy:

 

The Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak is still evolving and remains a Public Health Concern.  We would like to advise you of some temporary changes we are making to manage risk to our clients, our therapists, and our staff members. When it comes to client and therapist safety we are trying to make sure our decisions are based on precautionary principles and taking reasonable steps to reduce risk.  

              

With high numbers of clients seen over the course of a month, young and old, we have no reasonable way to screen everyone.  This creates what we would consider to be a potential risk to the health of all of our clients, and staff, which we are endeavoring to alleviate through the use of distance-based modalities.  In order to continue providing service, but to mitigate risk, telephone sessions will be offered to clients until the spread of the virus has slowed, and guidance from trusted sources reverts to normal.

 

Therefore, starting on Tuesday, March 17th, we will be transitioning to telephone delivery of service for the foreseeable future.  We understand that not all situations can be easily transitioned to telephone services and clients will always have the option of declining telephone based sessions.

 

We will continue to keep you updated, and in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out for more information.

 

We value all of our clients and appreciate your support as we implement these temporary changes. For the most up to date information please check back here or look for us on facebook.
