Mental health care is essential, perhaps now more than ever
Our dedicated therapists are ready to help you through this via Telehealth
As you now know, there are preventative measures being taken to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). This virus has caused each of us to make important and unprecedented decisions about how to maintain personal safety, the safety of our loved ones, and the safety of our communities.
Although WILA is considered an “essential” business and could remain open for in-person sessions, we made the difficult decision on March 18th to transition fully to telehealth (secure video and phone sessions). We weighed the benefits of continuing in-person therapy with the risks of putting you and those you make contact with at risk for infection. Ultimately, we felt we had a social responsibility, particularly as a high traffic clinic open to the public.
While it may seem obvious to some, this was a hard decision to make. Social distancing goes against many of the values we hold most dear, particularly the healing powers of connecting and relating. We recognize that WILA is a safe place for so many and, for some, a constant source of support in an otherwise isolated life. This will require adjustment. As an organization and a community, we are prepared to adjust with you.
We look forward to the day when meeting in-person is again a safe and viable option. Until that time, we encourage you to find new ways to make meaningful connections and bolster your ability to tolerate uncertainty. Teletherapy is one great way!
