We understand there is a lot of fear and uncertainty in our world right now and we are here to help!  


​We're offering video sessions during this difficult time for all current and new clients.  We are also continuing "in-person" sessions for special circumstances. 

Teens and kids have been found to open up faster online, because this is apart of their daily world.  Virtual sessions provide a great opportunity for parents or couples to work on in-home behaviors in real time.  We are prepared to make this a great opportunity for growth.

COVID-19: What you need to know

To All of Our Clients,


We know that there's a widespread concern in our community about the Coranavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), and we want you to know that your health is our top priority at Machado Family Counseling.


Though the risk remains low, it's important to take proactive approach to minimize exposure:

  • If you've recently been in any airport, please wait 14 days before coming in for an appointment.
  • If you or someone close to you has recently traveled to or from another country, we insist you postpone booking an appointment until further notice.  If this applies to you, please contact your therapist via email, and she will put you on a dedicated wait-list for an appointment.
  • If you are exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness, have difficulty breathing, or have a fever of over 100 degrees F, we urge you to stay home, take care of yourself, and seek medical help when appropriate. 


I encourage you to schedule a secure video appointment.


Please refer to the CDC's dedicated 2019-ncov website for additional information, and maintain awareness by checking the official communications from the Centers for Disease Control.
