The staff at Intuitive Therapy & Consulting would like to reassure you that your safety and psychological well-being are our top priority. Our offices will remain open for in person appointments as well as telehealth telephone and video sessions as an important component of the healthcare system. All of our locations are accepting new patient appointments at this time. Please note: some therapists are only seeing clients via telehealth, please see below. During this time, please be assured that we are regularly disinfecting our waiting areas and offices throughout the day. Hand sanitizer is stocked in each waiting area for client and staff use. Our waiting areas have low to no foot traffic and easily able to accommodate 6 feet of social distancing during this time. Our office spaces have ample room as well and are large enough to comfortably and safely sit at a distance for those clients who prefer to be seen in office. All of our therapists are offering phone and telehealth video sessions as well to provide services for clients who need to stay home or prefer a session from home via technology. We ask that all clients who are sick with any symptoms or have been around anyone sick request a telehealth session at this time. In addition, our staff will not be coming into the office if they are sick, but instead will offer a phone or telehealth session. This method of service delivery is also convenient for clients who have recently traveled or are at home with children. We use a HIPAA compliant video platform called Clocktree.com, which is very intuitive and user-friendly. HIPAA has been waived during the COVID-19 pandemic, so clients and staff are also able to use Face Time and other platforms if needed. Clocktree.com and most other platforms can be accessed from a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Please note that the licensing board regulations only allow therapists to offer telehealth services to clients who live within the state of Minnesota. Please note that individual therapists may do their own screening for level of exposure due to work or living environments to determine if telehealth would be the better option for ongoing appointment times.
Telephone sessions are covered at this time by all insurance companies due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are offering a reduced fee for those who are experiencing financial hardship and would prefer to opt out of insurance coverage due to high deductible plans. Please inquire through the website.
We want to stress the importance not only of physical health and social distancing, but also of mental health during this time. Our therapists are available to support your psychological well-being and self-care. Many of our therapists specialize in grounding exercises, meditation, and /or mindfulness modalities that can be helpful in reducing anxiety and fear. Regular mental health care can minimize the psychological impact of this pandemic as well as the impact of social isolation. Feel free to reach out through the contact us tab or by calling the intake line at 651-387-5312. Each therapist can schedule their own intake sessions as well and have their contact information listed on our Therapist Bio page. Update as of May 4th: Some of our therapists are providing all telehealth sessions continuing for the month of May. Some therapists are returning to the office one day per week for in-person appointments. Some therapists are still offering both in office and telehealth. Please visit the Therapist page with therapist photos that have the updates listed for each therapist. All locations still have in office appointments available.
We wish each of you love, light, and healing during this time.
