“At many times throughout their lives, children will feel the world has turned topsy-turvy. It’s not the ever-present smile that will help them feel secure. It’s knowing that love can hold many feelings, including sadness, and that they can count on the people they love to be with them until the world turns right side up again.” -Fred Rogers
At Alexandria Place Therapy, our goal is to create a safe space for all of our clients and the community. Given the current concerns we are facing in the world, Alexandria Place Therapy has decided the safest option for our clients and staff is to continue with teletherapy for the present time. We are using HIPAA-approved telehealth platforms to provide therapeutic services that are as close as possible to the in-person experience our clients have come to trust and value. This transition allows our clinicians and our clients to avoid unnecessary exposure, while maintaining continuity of care, especially during such uncertain times.
Our team continues to work hard to adapt our practice and best support our clients via telehealth. We have found great success in fostering connection and offering help in this new world we find ourselves.
How Teletherapy Can Help
Times of uncertainty can trigger feelings of fear, sadness and anxiety. With the need to navigate the logistics of life in the time of uncertainty comes the mental and emotional challenges of coping with new and unforeseen circumstances. Therapeutic support can help address these uncharted emotions, develop practical stress management techniques, and instill coping skills that promote resilience both in the present and in the future.
Our staff is uniquely qualified as relational therapists, focusing our energies on sincere and genuine connection even in the new world of telehealth. In addition, our clinicians are getting creative about engaging ways to connect via virtual play therapy sessions with our child clients as well as focusing on connection and support in virtual sessions with adults.
The Alexandria Place Therapy team is making great efforts to engage in education and training to enhance our skills in teletherapy, sharing any and all resources with one another as we navigate this new world together. We are actively engaged in multiple professional communities to ensure we are keeping abreast of best practices, new techniques, and collaborating with other experts to learn dynamic new approaches to our work on this platform.
We feel hopeful and confident that we can continue to offer exceptional care to our clients throughout these uncertain times. We also very much look forward to the time we can sit in the same room together again.
