COVID-19 Office Updates March 31, 2020

With the news changing daily about the Covid-19 outbreak, the staff of Child & Family Counseling Group wants to share with you what we are doing for the families receiving care here, and for prospective client families. On March 30 the Bay Area extended the shelter in place order through the beginning of May and school closures through the end of the school year. This is likely to be much more of a "marathon" than a "sprint" as families continue to "shelter in place." Families need counseling services now more than ever.


According to the language in the order from County Public Health, mental health counselors and those traveling to and from counseling appointments are exempt from the "shelter in place" policy. To read the entire public health department announcement, please click here.


However, in the interest of staff and child safety, Child and Family Counseling Group is holding sessions via teleconferencing, as are so many other therapists. Your CFCG counselor is available to meet with you by teleconference appointment, answer your emails and by phone.


To ensure the safety and health of all members of our community when we do resume in-person sessions, we will take all precautions for any families who do come to our office.


We are sharply limiting the number of families in our office at the same time, and on the same day. Please contact your counselor to discuss scheduling.


As per our policy at all other times, if a member of your household has any signs of contagious illness, please call and cancel your appointment as soon as possible.

For more information and helpful articles on a variety of topics of interest to parents, please visit our parenting blog.


If you are already a current client, please contact your CFCG counselor directly about scheduling sessions.


If you have any questions about becoming a new client, please send a message through our website or call (408) 351-1044 and leave a voicemail. We will return calls and emails Monday-Friday 9 am-6 pm.


Thank you.
