Pau Hana Counseling  

Individual, Couples, Group, and Family Therapy Services 

Changes in response to COVID-19

Due to increasing concerns regarding COVID-19 transmission, starting 3-20-20, Pau Hana Counseling will no longer be seeing clients in person at our Hilo office until further notice, with your utmost safety in mind. All of our therapists will continue seeing clients virtually, via Telehealth technologies. We are using the Telehealth by Simple Practice technology, as well Zoom technologies, to continue providing treatment to our clients during this difficult time. The Telehealth and Zoom apps are very easy to use, all that is required is a computer or cell phone with video capabilities, and an internet connection. Nearly all insurance companies are currently providing coverage for Telehealth, so your payment rate for our services will not be affected at all. Please contact your therapist regarding questions about using this technology or insurance coverage. All of our therapists are currently still taking on new clients via Telehealth at the present time. We would love to help give you support during these trying times and send love and care to every person affected by this virus. We encourage everyone to stay home and stay safe.
