Hello,

Coronavirus fears are spreading throughout our communities. While I believe conscientious self care and hygiene practices will be adequate to ensure our health, we can make adjustments to increase prevention.

My office is cleaned on a regular basis. This includes rugs and furniture. Door knobs and surfaces are disinfected. We sit about four feet from one another. As I understand the existing protocol, three feet is the suggested and recommended social distance, particularly if someone is ill.

However, since my office is situated in a garden, and since the weather now is more benign as we approach Spring, I'm offering you a choice of location. 

You can still meet with me in my office. If you wish, we can have appointments outside in the garden. It's your choice. Please let me know what you would prefer. And, your decision doesn't have to be permanent. You can change your mind at any time.

I will let you know about where to wait before our appointments if we are meeting outside. Perhaps staying in your car until the gate opens for you is the most practical and efficient procedure.

Please let me know what you think about this possible structural change to our sessions. And please know, I am confident we will ride this experience out well. Frankly I'm more concerned about public fear responses than I am about the virus itself. Still, we need to care for ourselves and think through what is best emotionally as well as physically. I want you to be as comfortable and secure as possible in this environment as we work together.

with love and respect,

Joanna
