COVID-19 Information

Pathways Family Counseling is reopening to resume in person sessions starting the week of June 15th. Please note that keeping our clients, as well as our clinicians safe is a top priority for us. Each clinician at Pathways Family Counseling will make their own decision about returning to in person sessions. During this time we will also continue to offer telehealth services to best fit the needs of our clients. If you are a current client, please speak with your clinician regarding the current services that they are offering. If you are a new client, please contact the office and you will be scheduled with a clinician that best fits your needs and preferences for in person or telehealth sessions. We understand this has been a difficult and challenging time for many, we are here to help. 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time.
