Location

Clinic Response to the novel Cornovirus and COVID-19

The Psychological Clinic has been closely monitoring the spread of the novel Coronavirus (along with COVID-19) and governmental recommendations regarding how best to respond to this evolving public health concern. Because the health and safety of our clients and staff are of upmost importance, we are recommending that current clients transition to telehealth counseling (using video conferencing so that you can see and hear your therapist). We are still answering phones during regular business hours (see Clinic Hours to the right), though the physical clinic may not be open; we are trying to allow staff to work from home when possible. We are in the process of contacting all current clients about options regarding telehealth.

We are starting to see new clients, but we have a waitlist of people who called us prior to the shutdown. If you would like to be placed on our waiting list, you call 479-575-4258 during regular business hours. Thank you for understanding.
