Saint Louis Counseling Remains Open
Your mental and physical well-being are of utmost importance to us.
And we are here for you. We understand that during these uncertain times, addressing mental- and emotional-health issues and providing a continuum of care through professional counseling are essential for the well-being of the entire community. We are accepting new clients of all ages, as well as continuing care for our existing clients through Telehealth Counseling.
Be assured that we are keeping up-to-date with all the latest coronavirus recommendations and orders, both locally and with the CDC. We also are working as a team with Catholic Charities and our sister agencies, along with the Archdiocese of St. Louis, to address the individual and collective needs of those we serve.
TELEHEALTH COUNSELING FOR NEW & EXISTING CLIENTS
Effective immediately, we are providing Telehealth counseling by phone or through the HIPAA-compliant video platform, Zoom*. Zoom can be accessed on computers, smart phones, and tablets.
“Telemental health care can provide effective and adaptable solutions to the care of mental illnesses universally. While being comparable to in-person services, telemental health care is particularly advantageous…especially in isolated communities.” (National Institutes for Health)
