We don’t just hear, we listen.
COVID-19 and it’s wake of fears and uncertainties have paid a visit to our world, our nation, our state, and our central Texas community. To say this is an anxious time is an understatement. To pretend like Louis Laves-Webb, LCSW, LPC-S & Associates has it all figured out and knows exactly how to proceed would be an overstatement. However, the truth is we never really did. Our job was never to “know” but to know how to “be with”. We are here to truly listen. We offer unparalleled compassion, support, and partnership throughout this unusual set of circumstances.
Our mission has never wavered: Prioritizing the emotional needs of our clients, an overall reduction in client suffering, and supporting sustainable growth for the clients we serve are just as important to us now as they ever have been.
In light of these present circumstances, we’ve chosen to make a couple of changes to align more with the changing needs of our community.
- In efforts to “flatten the curve”, we have switched all ongoing and new therapy appointments to teletherapy. Teletherapy, video counseling, and remote mental health treatments include phone calls and web-based video sessions. This temporary transition to teletherapy is critical so that our hospitals and healthcare system do not become overburdened and exhausted
- We are pleased to announce the implementation of our Coronavirus Support Group that is ongoing and now forming. This online group serves as a confidential and therapeutic sanctuary of support during this challenging time.
- Lastly, this virus is not only a threat to our health and loved ones, but is equally threatening to our economic stability. Therefore, starting immediately, we are pleased to offer additional sliding scale therapy options and reduced rate psychotherapy. We don’t want finances to be a barrier to your emotional health.
Please consider us your source of mental and emotional health and please let us know if there is anything that we can do to enhance our services. We look forward to listening to you.
