3/8/2020:

We at Counseling West Seattle are keeping track of updates with the Public Health Officials who are monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

For those of you experiencing anxiety due to the virus, we would like to assure you that we have prepared our practice with practical steps to address patient concerns and manage anxiety in our community.

We are currently integrating telehealth through Doxy.me as an option for those of our clients who could potentially use it to meet for appointments if illness interferes with face-to-face sessions. Please contact your insurance and individual counselor for approval. 

Communication with patients during crisis is important to us and we are determined to stay in touch with patients and their families during any outbreak or quarantine.

We are creating a safe office environment for patients and employees. We are in the process of posting signs encouraging hand-washing and putting hand sanitizers in waiting rooms, offices and restrooms. Regularly checking the Centers for Disease Control website for updates and guidance on preventing the spread of coronavirus is of utmost importance to us.

News reports about the coronavirus and the possibility that it could become more widespread are making some people anxious. We are here to help quell fear by providing credible information to patients.

For the safety of our patients and employees, if you are experiencing fever, cough or shortness of breath, we encourage you to contact your doctor and let us know before visiting our offices or counselor to determine the best course of action. We want to make this time as stress free as  possible and thank you for your consideration in this process.

Remember to take care of your own health and that of your family. Take care of yourself first so you can take care of others and remember that if you become ill, you cannot provide effective care. 

Counseling West Seattle hopes for a speedy resolution to this disease and that all our patients and their families stay informed, safe and well during this time.

-Toni Napoli, Director
