Two Chairs Community,
As the situation related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) develops, we are closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization, as well as Bay Area departments of public health.
As you likely know, the state of California issued a stay-at-home order until May 3rd, in light of ongoing developments related to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our clinics will remain closed until further notice, and all sessions will take place via teletherapy. Our FAQ for teletherapy can be found here, and recent updates can be found below.
Our mission is to provide access to exceptional mental health services, and we remain deeply committed to ensuring access to care during this uncertain time. For us, this means working hard to support our clients and clinicians however possible during this adjustment period.
Research shows that therapy is much more successful if you are able to engage in weekly or biweekly sessions. We encourage you to continue in care via teletherapy in the coming weeks. If you are interested in starting care with us over video with the option of later transitioning to in-person care, you can book an initial consult.
Effective April 7th, 2020, we have updated our Practice Policies. You can find our new policies here, with the high-level changes outlined below:
Our care at Two Chairs focuses on in-person connection whenever possible. However, extensive research shows that teletherapy offers an effective way to ensure continuity of care, and continue your relationship with your clinician. Similarly, for our new clients, teletherapy allows you to get started in care with a clinician who is a great fit for your needs, goals, and preferences. Below you’ll find guidance to set you up for success in your upcoming teletherapy sessions.
We encourage you to try the below suggestions, to ensure a smooth and productive teletherapy session.
Read our full blog post on how to make the most out of your teletherapy experience.
If you have questions or concerns about teletherapy or your care, feel free to reach out to your clinician or our Care Coordination team, at [email protected] or (415) 202-5159.
In the coming weeks as the situation evolves, we will continue to update this page with further information. Thank you for being a part of the Two Chairs community.
