We need to take the stigma & fear out of depression by changing the narrative. It is not a disease. It is a part of the ups and downs of life and a signal from our bodies that we need to change something or take action.

To Our Valued Clients:

As the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic threat continues to grow and evolve, we wanted to update you on the precautions we are taking at Open Conversations, LLC to protect our clients and associates. In recent weeks, we’ve been closely monitoring this issue and working to inform our office about the steps they can take to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

This information is based on guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We have strongly emphasized the need for overall cleanliness, including frequent handwashing. We have also asked associates to stay home if they show symptoms of illness.
Our office continuously clean and disinfect on an hourly basis. As part of our COVID-19 prevention program, we have increased the time we devote each day to cleaning and disinfecting our office including high contact areas such as waiting area.
For clients who wish to minimize their time in the office, we offer Telehealth Video sessions through TheraNest's client portal.  If you have not set up an account through TheraNest, it is very important that you do so.  Clients will still need to notify us 24 hours in advance if they would like to cancel their appointments or change the method of appointment due to illness.  If you choose a Telehealth Video session, copays and payments should be submitted through TheraNest or by calling the office before the session starts.  


For the safety of our staff and counselors, any clients that come into the office with cold / flu/ COVID19 symptoms will be rescheduled. 


Most closures are happening with large organizations and large groups.  Due to our smaller office and population, we will remain open and continue to monitor Prince George’s and surrounding counties emergency services for announcements.  We will follow their lead on to physically close the office or not.


We truly appreciate your business and are committed to the safety of our clients and associates. We are also grateful to our associates who are helping us with prevention efforts.  If you have questions, please contact us @

(240) 360-4765. Again, we will continue to closely monitor this issue and provide updates as we get them.
