Coronavirus/COVID-19 Policies and Practices

We make this agreement with you, and ask that you make it with us: We follow current CDC and local government guidelines regarding masking and social distancing.  We wash or sanitize our hands frequently when outside our own homes. Within 5 days of your appointment we will not have been asked to self-isolate or quarantine by a doctor or local public health official, nor will we have experienced any of the common symptoms of COVID-19 or knowingly come into prolonged contact with anyone who has without being tested. These statements are also true for people who are in our households.

We make sure we have a high probability of health before we work with you.

Please update your intake and waiver when you get an email prompting you to do so, whether you are a new or existing client.

When you get your text and/or email reminders in the days before your appointment,  please take a moment to assess your wellness. If there is any question about your health or the health of your household (in terms of infectious disease) we will either reschedule with no cancellation fee or suggest wearing a high quality mask to your session.

At the building, we need you to wait until at least 10 minutes before your appointment to call up, as we are cleaning everything and it takes time. If you are on foot/bike, you can enter the lobby with code 07743; if you are driving, please wait in your car until the designated time (within 10 minutes of your scheduled appointment start).

When you get off the elevator please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer at the door of our office.

At our door: Shoes come off at the door and we will show you where to put your things. Please bring your own water.

We may request that you wear a mask. As of April 3, 2023 Washington state has lifted the mask requirement in healthcare settings. You are always welcome to wear a mask or request that we wear masks, and we may default to mask wearing ourselves for the time being. There is a nifty workaround for face-down droplet capture if wearing a mask in the face cradle seems suffocating.

Between sessions We clean everything we use or come into contact with, and run a powerful fan that pulls the air out of the office to clear the room of aerosolized droplets.

It is our hope that with all of these precautions in place we won’t get sick, but if or when we test positive for the Coronavirus we will let you know as soon as possible so that you may take appropriate action.
