Now’s the time!
You’ve never gotten counseling before. You thought about it from time to time during stressful periods. You may have even gotten the name of a counselor from a friend or family member. You didn’t follow up for any number of reasons: time, money, fear of telling a stranger your troubles and thoughts. Well, this is different. We are in a historically stressful, devastating time. The long-range effects on our mental health, physical health, financial health are yet to be known. Connection with a qualified counselor can make a significant difference in the way you cope and manage the disruption we are all facing. A session or two – or ongoing sessions – can help you have strategies in place for your own self-care even as you find yourself caring for others. Many counselors, including me, are now board-certified to offer telemental health sessions via phone or secure video platforms. We are ready to help. Now’s the time!
