Important Information about coronavirus (COVID-19)
& All-Desert Wellness Centers

To Our Valued Clients:

We know this is a stressful time for everyone and we want to let you know that we are here for you!

Safety

First and foremost, we take the health and safety of our clients and staff very seriously and want to be able to provide the necessary help and services to you as seamlessly as possible. We’re following federal and state guidelines and mandates to curb the spread of the virus, however, at this time, we are still seeing clients who wish to and are able to come into the office (at least until the federal, state, and local officials tell us that we can’t). We are keeping our offices clean and disinfected on a daily basis. However, we request that if you are sick, elderly, pregnant, or immunocompromised, that you choose to stay home for your own safety. We can provide services in other ways. Therefore, you should experience no disruption in the service you receive.

Our Commitment

We want you to know that we are committed to providing you with the quality counseling you have come to count on without interruption. This enduring mission guides us as we closely monitor updates and guidelines from the CDC, assess and respond to this situation.

Operations

As the global effect of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve and present a clear and present danger to the general population, we wish to let all of our current and future clients know that our commitment to excellence remains unwavering. The convenience of online therapy not only allows for access to your therapist, but also shields our clients from any form of virus transmission. We encourage you to message our therapists about electronic sessions, including over the phone or our online platform, www.doxy.me. Doxy.me is HIPAA compliant, is free, and easy to use on your phone, tablet, or computer.

Encouragement

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to all the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event. Above all, please continue to remain calm—every storm will pass and the sun will shine once again. You will come through this! Please use this short time period to focus on your families, rest and dedicate your spare time to growth and change. We extend sincere thanks to our clients, support staff and therapists for their ongoing work ethic and loyal dedication during this challenging time. We are not just your counseling center…we are family. We are on this mission together to serve you and help you navigate tough times and seek your dreams. Rest assured, we are here to serve!

We know how difficult it can be to suddenly have the whole family stuck at home. It can cause kids to go stir crazy and it's really awful if you have young children and the parents are still working. The following are some ideas to help you cope:

1. Play some board games as a family
2. Play a card game (Go Fish, Gin Rummy, War, etc.)
3. Play chess/checkers
4. Have movie night (with popcorn, of course, if you have it)
5. Cook dinner (or bake something) together
6. Play "Quarantine Olympics" (get the whole extended family involved)--Pick 1 or 2 people to be judges every day. Each day, pick something to compete in (make costumes/clothing from recycled material; build a leprechaun trap, come up with the best way to sneak candy into school; make a funny hat; bake the most colorful/unique cookies; and on and on. Everyone texts their pictures to everyone else, especially the judges, at the end of each day. At the end of quarantine, the winners get gold, silver, or bronze awards. This is a great way to reach out and have fun with the whole family, especially when it's spring break and some people had to cancel plans that they may have had to visit family or go have fun.
7. Don't worry too much about your kids' addiction to TV, YouTube, or video games right now (But still monitor them)
Parenting in the Time of COVID-19

Use them to your and your kids’ advantage, and have fun in doing so.  Download Worksheets
