As school has started up again locally, I’ve been tossing around ideas of how to get back into the office for in-person sessions. Schools here have gone to online-only for the first 3-4 weeks, then getting back to in-person how and when possible. I have decided to wait until October to see how in-person classes go before resuming my in-person sessions. That gives plenty of time for me to see how everyone is doing as far as interactions go, and to assess how safe it would be for me to return to the office.
Part of returning to the office means there are going to be significant changes, possibly including a change of the office location itself. One current factor of not returning to the office is the lack of windows in my office, and not having adequate, safe, confidential space outside to conduct sessions (and the oppressive heat, let’s not forget that). I’m currently looking with others for a space that is more accommodating for sessions that allows everyone to feel better about having in-person sessions again, including a potential garden area that’s relatively secluded (as a plant person, I’m pretty stoked about that).
I am continuing to have video and phone sessions available, Monday through Friday, 11am to 8pm. And still willing to refer out to other providers for anyone that needs/wants in-person sessions now.
My hope is the next update will have information detailing the office procedures for returning to the office for in-person sessions.
