I hope everyone is doing well! I speak with many of you often, but for some, it has been a while. I wanted to reach out and let you know I have been thinking about so many of you lately and praying for health and safety for you and your loved ones. We are always here for you. Forgewell Solutions is conducting telehealth sessions and some in-person sessions. When our therapists feel comfortable, they will be returning to the office with a plan in place that avoids client to client contact. Everyone's safety is our primary concern.
Are you curious about telehealth? I will be honest, I wasn't sure about how it would work at first. But, it isn't that bad. Telehealth does have some perks including no traffic, taking place in the comfort of your home, and bunny slippers are now an acceptable dress code option during a session. It is important to find the positive in all situations.
Currently, Forgewell Solutions has 12 therapists and 1 prescriber in the office. We have therapists that see children, adolescents, teens, adults, couples, and families. Our therapists see clients Monday through Saturday. Believe it or not, all of these clients can be treated through telehealth. We are getting the hang of virtual services! We take all major private insurances as well as Tufts Direct.
So you might be thinking, "How does telehealth even work?" It's easy to get started. All you have to do is go to ForgewellSolutions.com and find the therapist you want to see. You can request an appointment through their contact button and your request goes directly to that therapist. The therapist will contact you within 24 hours and she will send you a link for your session. You can "meet" with your therapist on a phone, computer, or laptop.
By the way, you should check out our super fancy new website site at ForgewellSolutions.com as well as our BLOG at ForgewellSolutions.com/news. Also, feel free to like or follow our social media accounts at @forgewellsolutionscounseling on Facebook and @forgewellsolutions on Instagram. By keeping in touch, you can meet our therapists and learn about what is happening in the office.
If you already follow us on social media, then you already know about our extra special intern Demi (the dog). She is working hard to be part of the Forgewell Team and hopefully, she will continue her studies to be a certified therapy dog.
Please let us know if we can assist you in any way.
