Covid-19 Response

Valued Clients,

In a very short period of time, COVID-19 has changed all of our lives drastically. As we all struggle to navigate our evolving new normal, we are thinking of you and hoping you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Please do reach out to us if you are struggling to cope with the significant changes in your daily life, social isolation, anxiety or fear, or any other overwhelming impact of this crisis. It is our hope that in the midst of this time of immense uncertainty will emerge undiscovered resilience, new and creative ways to adapt to change, strengthened connections and bonds, and an awakened appreciation for what truly matters.    

At Dr. Leah Clyburn & Associates, your safety and well-being continues to be our top priority. As such, we are closely following the guidelines and recommendations of the public health authorities and our regulatory body (NSBEP) on how to deliver services in the safest way possible for you, our psychologists, and our community. We have resumed offering some limited in-person appointments. Some of our psychologists are offering both in-person and virtual sessions, whereas some are offering exclusively virtual sessions during the pandemic. Please advise us of your preference. The provision of in-person sessions will also be at the discretion of your psychologist and will depend on their comfort level, health concerns, or personal risk factors. If you have concerns about continuing with virtual sessions, or feel that you are unable to derive benefit from telepsychology, please discuss these concerns with your psychologist.  Please refer to our telepsychology services page for more information.

If you will be attending sessions in person, it is important to us that you feel confident in being able to safely access psychological services without putting your health at risk. As such, our team is committed to adhering to a comprehensive protocol of clinic procedures designed to minimize the risk of infection.  We are also asking all clients to follow strict precautions to reduce risk while attending sessions. Please see our in-person sessions page for more details.

Thank you for your cautious consideration and cooperation. We so appreciate your determination, flexibility, and faith in us as we have converted to a new virtual reality of delivering psychological services.  We have been inspired by your adaptability, strength, and resilience.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.  We will continue to walk with you on your path to wellness.

Sincerely,

Dr.  Leah Clyburn & Associates
