COVID-19

 Semillas Counseling PLLC now offers telehealth sessions to clients as an alternative 

to an in-office visit,  which can enable you to connect with our clinicians 

while reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or further illness.  


We're here to help.  Don't isolate.  Our therapists can support you as you navigate this unprecedented time.

  

Please continue to consult the Chicago Department of Public Health, the Cook County Health Department, or the Center for Disease Control (CDC) websites for updates and preventative measures so that you can care for yourself, your family, and help reduce the impact of COVID-19.
