INFORMATION ABOUT COVID19 AND HOW IT WILL TEMPORARILY IMPACT OCEANHAWK COUNSELING
UPDATE: MARCH 16, 2020
OceanHawk Counseling will be suspending face-to-face services effective immediate. We feel this is important to protect clients as well as providers.
Thank you for your understanding!!
OceanHawk Counseling has been taking precautions regarding the corona virus such as extra cleaning, removing toys, magazines, coffee, etc. from the waiting area. However after Gov. Evers ordered all schools to close on Wednesday 3/18, we will follow suit. We have many clients that are children, as well as several vulnerable adults. Most insurance companies are lifting restrictions on phone/tele-therapy following Medicaid/Medicare's lead. Although we are closing doors temporarily and suspending face to face contact, you can still keep your appointments via phone or video. Our office staff will be calling clients to see how each of you would like to continue with your therapist. Hopefully there will be little disruption and client's appointments will go on as scheduled - just from the comfort of everyone's home. OceanHawk ASSURES you that any phone or tele-therapy session is held in an area of strict confidence. Some therapists may reach out from their office at OceanaHawk. Again, staff member from the office will be reaching out to all clients. Your therapist is also available if you have concerns or other questions.
Thank you for your understanding and helping to not spread the virus to keep all our loved-ones safe.
We are still accepting new clients but scheduling may be 4-6 weeks out, as most mental
health clinics are. Thank you again for your patient and understanding.
OceanHawk Counseling now accepts Quartz insurance. Welcome Quartz members!
(Sorry, this does not include Quartz Medicaid)
Reaching out for help is not easy. At OceanHawk Counseling Alternatives you are at home in an environment that is safe and comfortable to begin working through your struggles. Often, many people refrain from looking for help because they feel embarrassed to show what they deem as weaknesses or defects, letting fear of rejection stop them to take the first step.
Professional counseling is like an intimate talk, assisted by a caring friend that sympathizes and knows how you feel, but at the same time can maintain the professional objectivity to allow real change. OceanHawk Counseling Alternatives brings you a powerful ally in finding a new path and direction in life.
People looking for counseling are often struggling with troubles that have cropped up in their life. Troubles can be caused by painful relationships, work environments, family problems, health issues, loss of loved ones or simply feeling stuck in an unsatisfactory life. We see people who struggle with difficult life transitions, such as relationship difficulties or divorce, loss, job loss or change of occupation. The emotional symptoms are stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and non-useful anger. We also help those who are struggling with an alcohol or drug addiction as well as the loved ones who are affected.
Our first meeting is focused on carefully understanding the problems that you want to address, and then concentrate on your strengths, abilities, and finding meaning in life. The keystone of our practice is respectful attention to your individual differences, personal culture, and belief system. The result is a safe environment to experiment with applying your strengths to problems in new ways. We believe in results-focused therapy based on a client-centered philosophy, and can help you discover your inner resources to tackle any problem.
People of all races, cultures and orientations are welcome at OceanHawk Counseling.
Be assured... there IS a reason you have found us today. Perhaps you are ready to take that first step to discover a new way of looking at your world. We hope you will take the opportunity to achieve an enhanced life.
