A note from Betsy:
Last year, I was able to offer phone and Skype sessions to clients who wished to continue therapy during the winter months. This winter, I have registered with a secure, HIPPA-compliant, online portal to ensure greater client confidentiality for phone and video sessions. Skype is no longer a viable option because they've started to collect usage data on their users.
The Online Scheduler will no longer work be working after November 1st, You can schedule with me by sending a brief text to my cell: 952-221-6752. (My old phone number is no longer in service). Be sure to leave your name and the reason you're calling. I'll get back to you by whatever means you have contacted me. Here is my cell no: 952-221-6752.
For anyone who would prefer to see someone locally while I'm away, there are two therapists who have agreed to see my clients. Both therapists are seasoned professionals, each with her own areas of interest and expertise. Isabelle Dugauy's office is in Edina and Joan Pechauer's is in Maple Grove.
I apologize for any hardship or inconvenience my leaving may cause. I understand that it can be unsettling to have your therapist leave town for so long. Please consider video or phone sessions if you want to continue therapy through the winter. (It worked great last winter.)
Feel free to contact me by email or text if you have a question. Although I'll be out of sight, I'll still be reachable.
Have a healthy and kind holiday season, if I don't talk or see you before then.
