  • COVID-19 UPDATE (as of 01/19/22) 
           I am suspending in-person sessions until February 1, 2022 due to the wide spread of COVID. I will continue providing services online to all of my clients. 
  • COVID-19 UPDATE (as of 08/03/21) :

    I am reopening my practice for in-person appointments starting on March 15 , 2021 due to being fully vaccinated (Pfizer, dose 1 on 01/29/21, dose 2 on 02/18/21). In phase 1 of this process there are several conditions for in-person appointments:
    1) you have to be 2 weeks post fully vaccinated, which means that you got two doses of Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one dose of Johnson and Johnson AT LEAST 2 weeks prior to your first in-person appointment.
    2) you have to send me a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination card
    3) MASKS: you need to be willing to wear face covering in the common areas of the office AND be willing to take face covering off when in session with me.
    If you are interested in resuming in-person sessions and willing to follow three aforementioned guidelines, please, let me know by replying to this e-mail. Please, attach a copy of your card to the e-mail. Alternatively, you can text your card to me at 865-888-0257.
    TELEHEALTH: I will continue offering an option of telehealth appointments to all of my clients independently of vaccination status for as long as insurance is willing to pay for them and indefinitely to those who are paying out of pocket.
