Our offices will remain open for in-person counseling unless the State of Ohio rules that businesses of even a few people gathering together are a threat to public safety. Given everyone’s level of stress and anxiety, counseling is needed more than ever.
Our standard policy (in existence before the virus) is if you are sick you can cancel your appointment at any time and you won’t be charged. During elevated levels of health risk, we won’t be greeting anyone by shaking hands and will remain the recommended 6 feet apart. You can wear a mask, but we aren’t requiring this during your counseling session.
If you want, you can read more about the details of our health procedures.
If you cannot make it to your appointment, other options are available. NRC is equipped to offer services via phone or video. Email can sometimes be an appropriate way to resolve concerns. If finances are a concern, we offer a discount based on income, the counselor you choose, and the number and length of sessions you schedule.
NRC also has several self-help resources available ranging from free (Matt’s blog) to under $25 (Matt’s books). See christianconcepts.com for details.
No matter what happens, don’t lose hope. God is in control. My latest book, Journal Your Way To Hope, is now available. It’s an excellent way to calm your fears and recenter your hope in God. If hope and peace seem elusive to you, this is an opportunity for you to find the peace that surpasses understanding.
Peace be with you. Contact us with questions or any way we can help.
As a health-care facility, our office will remain open unless it is illegal to be out on the roads.
For your protection and the protection of other clients like you, including those who may be allergic or have asthma, please do not use tobacco products. Smoking is not allowed in the building or outside near the entrances to the building. Please do not smoke immediately before attending your appointment.
We appreciate your cooperation with our health policy. Thank you so much!
