COVID-19:  Dear Clients: I know this is a very troubling and confusing time.  Our office is available to assist if needed.  We are currently open.  We are taking additional measures to create gaps between client appointments to minimize client crossover.  We are also cleaning commonly touched surfaces after each client visit.  However, as an alternative all services are available over audio or video conference.  This works best if you are located in a quiet, private area without interruption.  Please notify us in advance if you prefer to utilize the audio or video option.  Video is conducted using the Zoom platform which does not require a special account or device. – Teresa Parnell
