*COVID-19* response disclaimer:  At The Wellness Counseling Center, LLC, your health and safety, as well as the health and safety of our staff and families, is the main priority.  Therefore, we are utilizing the great benefit of technology to offer HIPAA-compliant and secure tele-mental health services.  To honor those who are concerned about potential exposure to COVID, tele-mental health is a useful tool and we have had consistent engagement and success through this format; however, many of you are ready to return and feel safe to re-engage in direct in-person services.  We have made a plan to run as close as possible to “business as usual”.  We do require the use of masks or shields, an attestation each time you come in that to your knowledge you are symptom free, but once you are seated with your therapist you are free to negotiate taking masks off.  Please let us know your concerns, as we are glad to discuss to hear from you.  Thank you for your cooperation as we do our part to “flatten the curve”.  Blessings and Be Well, Shannon H. Hiser, LPC, LCPC, RPT-S.
