The dramatic effects of COVID-19 in our community, nation, and globe have altered a sense of normalcy and safety we hope to carry through each day of our lives. One role of therapy is to help you identify your feelings, reactions, and narratives that may contribute to your ability to cope and adjust to the ongoing changes; to identify thought patterns or behaviors that may complicate emotional stress; and to help you identify and exercise adaptive ways to understand and cope with the many stressors in our world.
If you are interested in therapy during this public health crisis, I am providing teletherapy sessions via video teleconferencing or phone, as we all practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community. During this critical time, many insurance providers are offering the same out-of-network benefits that you would otherwise receive for in-person sessions, and I encourage you to contact your insurance provider for more info about your mental health or behavioral health benefits.
