Office Update regarding services offered during the Corona Virus Pandemic

Beginning 6/29/20 I will be offering in office sessions again for healthy clients. Telehealth sessions will also continue to be offered. The office procedures in place are listed below.  Face mask or covering required.

  • Any person with symptoms, an elevated temperature or a positive diagnosis for Corona Virus is prohibited from entering the office.
  • Only clients who are symptom free and have had no known contact with anyone with symptoms within 14 days of the office visit, will be seen for in-person appointments.
  • All clients scheduled for in-person appointments will be asked to take their temperature before leaving home and to not come to the office if it is elevated (100 degrees Fahrenheit or more)
  • Clients will wait in the car or outside until receiving a text that the office is ready for their arrival. No one will be in the waiting room for more than five minutes.
  • Contactless hand sanitizer dispensers are installed in the waiting room and in the consulting room. Anyone entering the office will be asked to use one to sanitize their hands.
  • Anyone entering the office will wear a mask. Dr. Bauerfeld will wear a mask whenever anyone else (beyond symptomless members of her household) is in the office and when entering and leaving the building. Disposable masks will be available for those who may not have one.
  • Chairs in the office have been arranged according to safe distancing precautions.
  • Dr. Bauerfeld will adhere to a distance of at least 6 feet from all clients in the office and will refrain from any, and all, physical contact (ex. handshakes) at all times.
  • Clients participating in in-person sessions will be verbally screened for exposure to COVID and be asked to minimize their potential exposure to COVID in between appointments.
  • All doorknobs, chairs, Kleenex boxes and other surfaces in the office that clients may come in contact with will be wiped down with an antimicrobial product after each in-person session.
  • Filters have been placed on all air vents in the office and will be changed regularly.

Family life with technology can be challenging. We all know that too much screen time can be harmful for kids, yet most of us find it difficult to limit it successfully. What’s a parent to do? At we recommend you use the following formula —  Be Curious, Not Furious about screens and devices, Unplug from Worry, Plug-in to Your Kids and Teach Skills. Following this formula can mitigate many of the risks associated with children’s screen use. To learn more, visit where you will find weekly tips, strategies, resources and guidelines for living and parenting well in the modern world. It’s a free resource designed for parents striving to raise resilient, mindful, kind and successful children in a world filled with screens. I hope you’ll check it out, sign up for notices of new posts and both like and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In light of the ongoing disruptions and stress resulting from the Corona Virus Pandemic I have joined together with Chris Parrott of Your Self Series, Janine Kelly of Sped*Net Wilton & Advocate Together, LLC and Ginna Yarrell of Wilton Youth Council to offer a free monthly support forum for parents.

Everyone can learn a more effective way of managing  their life, their job, their family. All it takes is good enough knowledge, the will to change, time, effort, practice, and encouragement. In individual sessions, group workshops and speaking engagements I teach people how to create positive change for themselves and their loved ones. Using a combination of techniques gathered from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Short-term Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness Training, Life Coaching, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation I help individuals and groups learn, develop and practice effective strategies for becoming more calm, capable and connected. Specialties include:

-Parenting/family issues
-Anxiety Management
-Coping with learning/functioning challenges (ADHD/LD/TBI)
-Technology Management
-Chronic pain/illness

It’s never too late to learn skills for positive change.
