In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PCSSS is offering Telehealth psychotherapy to our clients. We are grateful we are able to provide uninterrupted counseling services through Telehealth, using online formats that allow for both audio and video conferencing, as well as over-the-phone sessions.
As Massachusetts reopens, state leadership recommends that those who can work from home continue doing so in order to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus. The American Psychological Association also recommends that outpatient therapists continue using Telehealth as much as possible at this time. PCSSS supports the recommendations to continue providing Telehealth psychotherapy and to provide in-person social distancing sessions on a case-by-case basis and at the clinical discretion of the therapist.
While we are unclear as to when we will be reopening our offices, PCSSS is committed to staying apprised of policy and procedure recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. We are grateful for your continued patience and understanding as we determine how best to serve the South Shore community during these confusing times.
As we move forward, we will continue accepting new referrals for Telehealth psychotherapy throughout the pandemic. To begin the referral process, please call or email using the contact information above. If you have already spoken with a counselor and are preparing for your first Telehealth therapy session, you can access all of the necessary intake paperwork using the link above.
