Current Counseling Realities with COVID

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect daily life. Like many of you, Olive Tree Counseling Center is monitoring the World Health Organization (WHO), regional news, and local news very closely. And as always, we are working closely with both those inquiring for counseling, and our staff, regarding safety and recommended protocols.

All our counseling is now primarily in person again, although we have a limited number of openings available for online intensives for those who are still unable to travel due to COVID-19.
