    Covid Info

    June 19, 2020

    Dear clients and prospective clients,

    We are open for meeting with clients both in person and via a secure private video-conferencing system! Currently masks are required by the county for in person sessions but we are able to meet with clients who wish to meet in person Mondays 9 AM to 9 PM and Tuesdays through Fridays 9 AM to 4 PM by appointment only

    We know that there’s widespread concern in our community about the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and we want you to know that your health and safety is our top priority at Community Counseling Center of Elk Grove and for all of our providers.

    With the increasing uncertainty and growing number of infected individuals around the world, we encourage you to take responsibility for yourself and your family. Though the risk remains low individually, the risk for us as a community is extremely real! It’s important to take a proactive approach to minimize exposure and the spread.

    • In accordance with State of California directives, all of our offices have been been reduced in hours and masks are required of both counselors/therapists and clients. We can only meet with our clients face to face during limited hours. We are continuing to be able to meet with our clients through a secure and private video connection with two-way concurrent video and audio. This is being accomplished through our SimplePractice software and will connect you directly with your own therapist at their home at your scheduled time. Your counselor will be sending a link to you that allows you to easily connect via computer or smart phone. Your device will need to have a camera and a microphone for this to work. Contact your counselor directly using our web page or phone number above.
    • Please stay home as much as possible, when you go out where a mask when advisable, take care of yourself, and seek medical help when appropriate.

    I encourage you to schedule an in person or secure video appointment with your counselor if you do not already have one. Research shows that video appointments can be just as effective as in-person appointments, and we can continue supporting you without interruption. If you’re interested, let your counselor know and we will make the necessary arrangements.

    Please refer to the CDC’s dedicated 2019-ncov website for additional information, and maintain awareness by checking the official communications from the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization.

    If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Michael Beckner,
