Sessions are continuing via telehealth only here at kTherapy and Brainspotting with Katherine.
I would like to assure all current clients of the measures that I am personally taking for my own safety as I am continuing to come to my physical office daily, although I am only conducting sessions via telehealth.
All new clients will be exclusively online until the physical distancing guidelines of the pandemic have been lifted.
I have Clorox wipes that I use on door handles, chair arms, my phone, pens, headphones, pointers and anything else that a client or I may touch. I have alcohol-based spray hand sanitizer as well as organic/natural hand sanitizer.
I wash my hands 10+ times daily for a minimum of 40-seconds with soap, water, and then dry them thoroughly. I follow up with hand sanitizer as well.
I insist that you may not come to the physical office space.
We can set up video sessions, as I have with several clients already, to bridge the gap during the COVID-19 situation. I use the HIPAA-compliant version of Zoom (the popular video conferencing software) for these sessions. Zoom is free for clients to use.
The building management has informed me that they have 2 rounds of sanitation daily. They are using Lysol spray and bleach (separately) to address all interior and exterior door handles as well as elevator buttons, restroom handles and fixtures, and handrails in all stairwells. This occurs around 5:30-6:00am as well as around 8:00pm daily.
I am including the following video from DHMS as I feel it has great information and education. It is dated March 9 so the statistics are outdated, but the information is not.
This COVID-19 event will end, as all viral infection cycles do. I hope that we can all remain safe and measured in our response to this time and learn new methods of looking after one another that carry on long after it ends.
