COVID-19 MESSAGE FROM SMILE THERAPY SERVICES, LLC
Because of the current climate due to COVID-19 SMILE is prioritizing our tele-health sessions. Therapists are on hand to meet virtually with all of our clients while continuing to provide continuity of care.
If our therapist deem it necessary to meet face to face with a client we have enacted a special set of procedures that clients and therapists must follow and a waiver form to be signed. This form can be downloaded here
Our commitment to providing the best care for our clients is our number one priority and SMILE will continue to monitor any further developments and safety enhancing procedures from the CDC to ensure we follow all suggested protocols.
If you are a new client seeking services, please use our “make a referral for therapy services” form that can be located on our website and our office will contact you within 48 hours. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact 911 for immediate assistance.
In an effort to stay abreast of all of the developments by the CDC in relation to COVID19, SMILE employees have participated in certification training courses that educate our employees about how to identify the virus, how to disinfect/clean commonly used surfaces in our office spaces and how to ensure we don't add to the progression of the novel Coronavirus.
