Cognitive Dynamic Therapy Associates - Teletherapy Update
During the pandemic CDTA has provided teletherapy for almost all our clients, and for the present, we are continuing that policy. We have appreciated your receptiveness and even preference for this growing approach and we intend to continue to offer teletherapy even after all restrictions have been lifted.
In the coming months CDTA intends to re-open our doors as conditions permit. We will keep you informed regarding these changes, and we will follow the guidelines as provided by the CDC and local authorities. When the time comes your therapist will address your questions and any concerns you may have. You can then decide whether teletherapy, in person sessions, or a combination is right for you.
Whether in person or online, we at CDTA promise to provide the best possible services, and we welcome your questions and comments.
