Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to extend the closure of our physical office until further notice. An earlier post and email indicated that we would open on April 1, 2020. However, until the pandemic crisis ends and the government gives the okay, we will not be opening the physical office to the public for both the safety of our staff and clients. We are sorry for the inconvenience


All current and future therapy sessions with Rachel will still take place, but in Telehealth form. We are still accepting new clients! Please refer to previous posts about how to access your Teletherapy sessions with Rachel and for other important information.


Be sure to subscribe for email updates about when a new post is made so that you can stay in the loop!


As a reminder, we cannot help but stress certain guidelines by the CDC:


  • Stay home as much as possible and limit unnecessary traveling.

  • If you must leave, maintain social distancing standards in public locations such as doctors' offices, supermarkets, pharmacies, etc. This means keeping a distance of at least 6 feet between you and another person.

  • Frequently wash your hands with WARM water for at least 20 seconds (Sing the 20-second chorus of these well known songs to make it fun for you and the kids).

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces in your home.

  • If you think you may be infected: quarantine yourself and your household members for 14 days in your home and call your primary care doctor's office for a Telehealth visit immediately. DO NOT GOT TO AN URGENT CARE CENTER OR HOSPITAL WITHOUT GIVING NOTICE (this can cause other people to get exposed) From there, your doctor will be able to point you in a direction to get tested safely and without causing potential exposure to the public, especially vulnerable populations.

YES! You heard that right! We know that COVID-19 has brought forth financial burden for some people. So we wanted to post about a major opportunity that many Americans are seizing to offset some of the burden.


Many banks are offering deferments and other financial options during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States!


Most major auto-lenders are offering some type of relief during this pandemic. For example, Ally financial is deferring payments for up to 120 days and all you have to do is login to your account to sign up for the deferment option.


Some banks and automakers may require a phone call to make arrangements while others will not.


Please note that interest may still accrue and the arrangements are up to the lender's discretion so not all options will be the same. However, this is something worth looking into.


We will continue to post any and all the information we can find in the upcoming weeks about any financial bailouts for Americans. This may include posts about stipends, loan and bill deferments, etc.


Be sure to subscribe to get updates about when we post to stay informed! STAY WELL!

Most of the clients at Perlman Counseling have used Patient Ally to fill out intake paperwork online. But did you know you can also make payments online in Patient Ally? This feature is awesome because our clients can make payments to their accounts for copays, deductibles, coinsurances, and cost shares, AND they can also view past payments they have made!


We are encouraging our patients to utilize their Patient Ally accounts as much as possible to pay their bills and keep their accounts up-to-date during the physical office closure and beyond. This handy feature will give our clients peace of mind knowing that their accounts are up to date and that their copays are paid at the start of a session before it shows up as an account balance due.


Here are the steps to access PatientAlly Bill Pay:


1.) Login to your PatientAlly Account

2.) Click Bill Pay

3.) Click the drop down menu that says "Select Provider" and Select "Rachel Perlman"

4.) Select Make Payment*

5.) Confirm your Billing Information

6.) Select "Partial Payment" and enter the desired payment amount or "Full Payment"**

7.) Enter your credit card information in the appropriate fields.

8.) Click "Process Payment"


*This option will only be available if balances are due after insurance claims are processed.

**Carefully select which option you are choosing. Be sure you know the correct amount owed by confirming with a staff member from the office. This will eliminate the potential for over-payments and/or partial payments being made.
