In light of the rapid developments regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, I am writing today to tell you about Voth Family Therapy’s preparedness plan. We are committed to your wellbeing, the health of our therapists and to doing our part to prevent the further spread of this illness. The VFT team is taking the following measures to ensure continued services and good health:
How do I make changes to my appointment time or method?
As always, please contact your therapist directly by phone, text or email as soon as you know you need to make a change to your appointment time. You can also discuss your preferred appointment method (phone, Skype or Doxy.me, in-person) with your therapist.
What if things change?
The situation regarding COVID-19 is changing rapidly and we are doing our best to keep pace with current government recommendations. Your therapist will contact you directly to discuss any additional changes or you will receive a notification like this one by email.
All of this planning is making me (or my kids) anxious.
We can help with that! Keep an eye on our blog and social media feeds for information about staying mentally well and supporting your kids during this stressful time. Speak to your therapist about your specific situation.
Please remember that by attending appointments in-person you may unknowingly be putting others at risk, including your therapist and their family. VFT therapists are among the many people in Manitoba who don’t have paid sick benefits. In addition to our hope to reduce the spread of infection, we also wish to minimize the financial and other impacts of the virus to the people in our communities. So, whether the concern is COVID-19 or the common flu, your consideration for our health, the health of other clients and the health of our community is always appreciated.
I understand that most clients prefer to meet in-person and that getting creative with how our sessions happen might be uncomfortable for you. Your willingness to help us “flatten the curve” of COVID-19 is much appreciated!
To stay informed, please follow us on Instagram and Facebook and keep an eye on the blog. The World Health Organization is the best source for up-to-date information. You can find them here.
Wishing you good health and with much warmth,
