Safety Measures for COVID-19

The community at large is navigating through the quickly evolving outbreak of the coronavirus, COVID-19.  Please carefully read the following policy to be implemented immediately in order to help prevent the spread of infection.  

I am taking this health concern very seriously, and the safety of all of my clients is my top priority. Currently, all of the practitioners within our suite are continually disinfecting areas/objects that are frequently shared/touched, including in between sessions.  

To support the government’s recommendation of social distancing, I will be offering remote sessions for those who prefer to stay home while still benefiting from therapy.  I encourage all clients to take advantage of this.  Below you will find consent forms for remote virtual sessions as well as a new electronic communications consent. Please be sure to download these forms, sign and return them so that we can schedule your remote virtual session and minimize the spread of this virus. Please reach out in order to make the necessary arrangements to schedule your remote appointments. At this time, I will no longer honor requests for in-person sessions.

In the meantime, we will continue to abide by Universal Precautions in accordance with the CDC, and encourage you to do the same:

  • Wash hands for at least 20 seconds
  • Respiratory hygiene:  cover coughs/sneezes with a tissue, then throw the tissue away in trash (or cough/sneeze into your sleeve)
  • Clean/disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid touching nose, eyes, and mouth

I deeply appreciate everyone’s cooperation as we navigate this continually evolving situation.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 908-312-0417.  

With Sincerest Gratitude,

Kristina Cofone, LCSW
