COVID-19 & BLM ResponseUpdated 11/12/2020
COVID-19 has impacted all of our lives. Plus George Floyd’s death highlighted that spaces for grieving and work needs to be done around racism and the BLM movement. Our staff is committed to diversity and health. We are here to support growth and change! Effective November 16th, 2020, our office will align with Chicago’s Stay At Home order by moving all non-necessary appointments back to virtual Telehealth sessions. If you are someone’s who needs an in-office approach for medical necessity reasons, we will work to create a plan around proceeding safely. New clients welcome! We all need to be doing what we can for our mental, emotional and relational health. Many insurance plans approved Telehealth through December 2020. We accept BCBS PPO insurance as an in-network option. We also offer sliding scale sessions through our clinical residents for those without resources.
