Responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic

Our COVID-19 Safety PlanCOVID-19


The Guidance Group is dedicated to supporting the health, happiness, and wellbeing of all of our clients and staff.  As our society faces a rare and widespread public health challenge in the form of COVID-19, we want to do our best to continue to provide mental health and counseling services with the least amount of disruption possible. 


In keeping with current recommendations from health & governmental organizations, we have elected to make a temporary adjustment to how we deliver our services.  In order to minimize potential exposures and the risk of spread, we are temporarily suspending the offering of therapy appointments at our office locations, effective the week of March 15, 2020.

Until further notice, we will continue to offer our full schedule of availability, with minimal disruptions, via Telehealth.


What if I don’t have internet access?

Your Guidance Group therapist or staff will talk with you about your unique circumstances and develop a plan to maintain contact / support until office-based services can be resumed.  This may involve contact via telephone.


How will I know when office appointments will be available again?

Our staff will be in contact with each current and new prospective client, and we will maintain a list of any people who may wish for us to reach out when the public health status allows for in-person sessions to resume. Additionally, we will be posting updates on this page as they are available.


Are you taking new clients at this time?

We understand that there is a lot of impact on people's emotional wellbeing during times of crisis and uncertainty.  We want to offer ongoing support to our community, and given our capability of doing so via Telehealth, we are open to accepting new clients.  We presently have availability for new client appointments within a day or two.  Please bear in mind that depending on your needs, a staff person will talk with you to assess whether Telehealth care is appropriate to your clinical needs.
