Updated March 2021


Dear Samaritan Clients:

We have been closely following the government, community, and personal responses to recent spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus in the U.S. As always we seek what’s best for our clients, our therapists, and our staff by adhering to the Centers for Disease Control guidelines.

Consequently, we are complying with the Governor's mitigation guidelines. 
Samaritan is providing therapy via video, telephone, and in-person.* You can receive therapy via your laptop, desktop, iPhone, iPad, or Surface and Android phones. Insurance companies are currently covering video and phone therapy.

  • *If you and your therapist mutually agree to in-person therapy, Samaritan offices are supplied with masks, hand sanitizer, and fans for your use.

  • Please remain in your vehicle and contact your therapist by phone to let  him/her know that you have arrived. Your therapist will share step-by-step guidelines to protect both of you. 

  • We will offer in-person therapy only in offices that are large enough to accommodate six feet of social distancing. 

  • Please do not arrive for an appointment if you have a fever or are feeling ill. You will not be charged a "no-show" fee during the COVID-19 crisis if you need to cancel due to illness.

  • We will continue to update our responses, as needed, so please keep abreast of these changes by following our website, Facebook, emails and phone contact.

Our commitment is to the overall health of our clients, and we recognize that the therapy we offer is a crucial part of living in a healthy way, especially in the face of the increased anxiety the spread of the virus has caused. So, if you need Samaritan's services, please give us a call at 412.741.7430 to make an appointment. Your therapist will provide you video (or telephone) therapy as you remain safely at home.

Thank you for choosing Samaritan as a place to help you as you strive for greater mental, relational, spiritual, and physical health.
