Special Message Regarding Session Changes

Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)  



The health and well-being of our clients and clinicians is our number one priority at The Azalea Institute. At this point, our office will be ceasing in office visits and transitioning to providing all counseling sessions via Telehealth for the time being. We want to do our part to help “flatten the curve” by reducing the spread of the Coronavirus and protect the health of our clients and clinicians. Telehealth counseling will be provided by a HIPAA compliant/secure video conferencing platform similar to Facetime or Skype.


We have contacted insurance companies and verified insurance will cover the cost of telehealth sessions the same as in office visits. Copays and session rates will not change for telehealth sessions. We will be sending you an additional informed consent to sign which will include more specifics related to telehealth.


This is a challenging, confusing and possibly triggering time for the majority of the world. We want to make sure that we are still available to provide support during this trying time. We appreciate your flexibility and will do our best to ensure continuity of care and continue to work together towards your goals.


Be well,


The Azalea Institute Family
