As the owner of New Endeavors Counseling Associates, like most of you, I continue to monitor the effects of COVID-19 and the recommendations for mitigating the spread of this virus. With that said, I want to reassure our clients that as we begin to reopen for in person sessions, we will continue to take every preventative measure possible to provide for a safe, clean and sanitized environment for your safety. We at New Endeavors are following all recommended guidelines of the CDC and our local health agencies and will continue to align with all public health guidelines.
We are currently reopening for in person services utilizing a controled and phased approach. Information regarding our office's policies and procedures can be found below. In addition, please continue to monitor our website and voice mail for any additional information. In the meantime, we continue to have access to HIPPA compliant secure video telehealth sessions via Doxy.me and Google Meet Up to provide telehealth services for our clients.
As always, we are fully committed to supporting you and your entire health and well-being.
Tracy Hood, LCSW
Owner, New Endeavors Counseling Associates
