As the corona virus (COVID19) continues to impact the world and our local community, we are all faced with many changes. One thing that does not change is our commitment to you. Your well-being is our primary concern. We want our clients to continue to have the counseling and psychotherapy support you need in a way that keeps everyone safe.
We wanted to let you know that after much consideration, we have decided to move counseling sessions to our confidential, virtual office space. Your health and wellbeing are our top priorities and we want to make sure that everyone is able to stay healthy. We understand that this is not an ideal situation and acknowledge that a change of plans can be very difficult.
We also want to acknowledge that there has been a lot of understandable fear, anxiety, and confusion surrounding our current health environment. We encourage you to continue to make self care a priority. Our hope is to support you in any way that we can. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out.
Stressful situations such as COVID 19 are a challenge to all of us. A wide range of emotional responses, including anxiety and distress, are normal in times like these. One of the most stressful features of this crisis is our sense of the unknown. Here in Houston, if we are facing a storm, we know how to prepare and a bit of what to expect. With situations such as these, the territory is unfamiliar. It is important to strike a balance. That means making wise choices, evaluating your risk factors and following the recommendations on how to best stay healthy. Meanwhile, there are a few things you can do to support your mental health. We encourage you to avoid excessive news watching or internet searches as these can lead to stress and anxiety. Practice the things that help you feel more calm and hopeful, like meditation, yoga or listening to music. Take a walk outside. Read a book from that stack you’ve been saving. Stay in touch with friends, via phone, text, FaceTime. As always, please reach out to us for support.
If you have a scheduled upcoming appointment, please check your email for further instructions.
