**Please note: I will be on maternity leave until July 2021** As a result, I do not have availability for new therapy patients or evaluations at this time. Unfortunately, I will not be able to respond to inquiries until my return or maintain a waiting list. I understand the difficulty at this time to find therapists with availability. That is why I compiled this list of crisis resources and several practices that may be able to accommodate your request or need. Note: the fact that they are listed below is not a guarantee of availability of these practitioners.
If you are a current patient, we have made arrangements for your care during my leave; please refer to that plan. If you are a returning patient looking to restart treatment, please feel welcome to reconnect when I return. In the meantime, you may refer to the resources below.
