Important Update Regarding COVID-19

As of March 23rd, 2020 StrongMinds has transitioned all services to a telehealth platform. This move has made it possible for our clinicians to continue providing important services to our community, while also allowing our practice to follow the guidelines of the CDC, WHO, and local, state, and federal governments in order to avoid spreading illness. 

We are still accepting clients for teletherapy. Please do not hesitate to reach out and request the services you need. We understand this is a stressful time. We are here for you.

At this time, we ask that if you need to get in touch with our office for any reason, please email us at

We do not have a timeline for when we will resume face-to-face appointments.
