After careful consideration of several HIPAA compliant options, we have opted to utilize Google Meet - part of the Google Workspace (formally G-Suite) professional services our agency utilizes for email and other features, in large part because of their diligence and encryption. Additionally, we are finding Google Meet to be user friendly and reliable.
We would like to reassure everyone that, if you are an active client, your counselor has space for your sessions on their calendar and would like to continue working with you. So, please do not worry that you're "taking up" someone else's space. We, as an agency, are fully prepared to continue operating as close to normal capacity as possible to ensure our clients received the mental health care they need and that our small business survives these difficult times.
Each of our active clients have been sent out a DocuSign containing our Telemental Health Consent Form. Please take moment to read through it and sign it so that you will be able to continue your routine sessions with your counselor without delay.
If you have not received a consent form through DocuSign please email our Office Manager, Paige Ragogna (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your patience as we adjust to the situation! Please let us know what questions and concerns you have.
We wish you all well,
Oasis Counseling Center
