Dr. LaCroce takes your privacy seriously, but like most Americans has had to make adjustments to in order to provide psychological services from home rather than from his office. Several days a week he is at home alone with his dog Enzo, but on some days, his husband is working from home in a different room. Dr. LaCroce and his husband wear headphones when necessary to limit your information from being heard. Dr. LaCroce has arranged a corner of his home as his Telehealth office and ensures his camera faces a wall or closed shades so that no one can see you.
San Francisco’s March 2020 shelter-in-place order due to the COVID-19 pandemic) has led James LaCroce, Ph.D. to temporarily transition mental health services to a Telehealth format. These adjustments meet HIPPA and California Board of Psychology standards as outlined in California Executive order N-43-20. Telehealth technology is encouraged for mental health services whenever possible to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Dr. LaCroce is licensed by the CA Board of Psychology (PSY21605) to provide psychotherapy and psychological assessment services from his San Francisco home through use of Zoom.com. A secure link and password are provided to clients for each session and Dr. LaCroce has a virtual waiting room to further enhance security. Telephone and FaceTime are utilized and backups in the event of technical difficulties (e.g. poor internet connection).

Dr. LaCroce plans to offer client’s office appointments for all psychological services after he and his clients receive vaccination for COVID-19 and infection rates for the virus are low enough to make it safe. Hopefully this will occur in 2021.
