To best help you meet your needs in the time of COVID 

Updated guidelines

Should I come to my appointment?   

We continue to do our best to stay up to date with the requirements and advice of medical professionals.  We want to be certain to keep all of our clients safe, as well as our employees.  We will remind you that we do continue to require masks at all times in the office to ensure your safety and ours.   How do you know when it is safe to come in for your appointment or when you should call to reschedule?   Here are our current requirements: ​

  • For a positive Covid 19 test stay home 5 days and 24 hours with no fever, whichever comes last

  • If you are running a fever or experiencing symptoms that are not typical for you please stay home. 

  • If you have been exposed to somebody with a positive test but have not been having symptoms you will be required to wear a mask in the office at all times.   If you develop symptoms immediately call to reschedule. 

We thank you for your cooperation in this.  Please help us stay safe and keep our community safe.  

On being mask optional 

 In keeping with many other services and businesses in the community, we are opening our office to a mask optional policy.   We do still continue to encourage mask-wearing, especially if you have a lowered immune system or have not been vaccinated.    We strive to keep everybody safe so we can all keep serving the community and masks are a big part of that.    Regardless of your choice, your therapist may opt to wear a mask during your session.   

Keep wearing our masks 

As cases continue to grow in the community, and vaccinations are not rising as quickly as they could, Clear Perspective is once again stepping up our efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of our clients.   We fully understand that some people are opposed to wearing masks or getting a vaccination and we do respect your opinions.   We cannot take risks that put any of our clients or employees at risk.    We will continue to require masks in all spaces of the office.   If you are having any symptoms, or are exposed to somebody that has tested positive, please remain home.   We will continue to provide telehealth services and strongly encourage anybody to take full advantage.   If you are comfortable using the online format we would encourage you to use it.   Call us to get your appointments changed or to reschedule.   Our number is 929-475-0149.   

 

 

Tami Grossens and the Clear Perspective crew.   

About 6 months into the COVID national emergency and we continue to learn more everyday.    We continue to strive to provide the highest quality of care to see the unique needs of each of our clients.    In order to keep us and the community safe we do continue to offer online Tele-mental health services.   We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to see our clients in the safest manner possible and the service is getting easier to understand and feel comfortable with.   So many services are online now and we continue to adapt to help make this transition easier.    If you are interested in finding out more about our online services please do not hesitate to reach out to us!   We are happy to help you understand how this works and how it can work for you.     

We do understand that some of us may have a need to get out and carry out our business in the community.    To ensure continued safety we do have masks to offer to our clients.    If you do need a mask to increase your own safety and help this pandemic find its end reach out to us and we will make one available to you.

  • If you have a fever
