April 17, 2020


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WV Governor Jim Justice ordered on March 24, 2020 that all West Virginia residents are directed to “stay at home” and to limit their movements outside of their homes for only essential needs. 


In order to continue to provide our therapy and counseling services remotely, we decided in March to begin using the most-highly reviewed telehealth company. We chose Thera-LINK. Thera-LINK allows us to “meet” with our clients by way of a HIPAA compliant, secure video and audio session. A convenient digitally-signed Consent for Telehealth form will be required.


Both our valued clients and we have been very pleased with our telehealth approach thus far!


To access Thera-LINK you will need a device such as a cell phone, laptop, iPad, or desktop computer which has a camera, a microphone and speaker. You will also need adequate and reliable high speed internet connection with a minimum download speed of 3 mbps (you can easily check yours here).


Please call or email our office to arrange a telehealth appointment. We have remote access to both our phones and emails.
