COVID-19 Advisory



STATUS UPDATE (06/28/2020 - Indefinite):

OFFICE CLOSED TO PUBLIC ACCESS - Video-conferencing sessions offered.



As the world continues to struggle with and manage the impact of this devastating virus outbreak, exposure and health risks continue to exist. Life Path Counseling PLLC, as a healthcare based practice, is obligated to ensure the safety and well-being of its’ clients and to decrease the risk of exposure. To that end, the following measures to continue providing services are in effect:


The intake page, which provides the ability for prospective clients to complete the intake form, will remain active for those who wish to complete the document. All new clients who have completed an intake or otherwise requested service but have not yet been seen, will be contacted for scheduling of video-conferencing services. Existing clients will need to continue using video conferencing sessions through a secure medium, in order to receive services.


The practice office space will remain closed to the public for direct in-person access for the foreseeable future. Pierce County must be elevated to Stage 4 status, with a minimum retention of 90 consecutive days in that stage. The volatility of the risk of exposure to and from the public has become largely unpredictable as well as unstable, and therefore needs to be avoided as much as possible. The situation regarding this virus is being monitored closely in consultation with the local and state health authorities. The business phone line for this practice will remain open during regular hours for contact. The Email address and contact form (located on the Contact page), are available 24/7 for your convenience. Your health and safety are extremely important during this time, and your understanding and patience is greatly appreciated. Please check this page for updates.
