Unexpectedly, everyone’s lives have changed. Fear and anxiety about the coronavirus pandemic and the ways it is affecting our families, communities, and businesses can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children alike. The challenges we are facing are unprecedented, and force all of us to stretch to new limits and dig deep into our emotional reserves to get by.
During times like this, it is crucial to cope with stress in a healthy manner. I want to encourage you to use this situation as an opportunity to strengthen your existing coping skills and to learn new ones, so that you can build resilience and maintain a positive perspective. This way you’ll be at your best for yourself and the people you care about. Everyone benefits when we learn how to process stress and anxiety in productive ways.
Continuing to provide support to my clients during this pivotal time is a top priority for me. Understanding that people need both support and social distance, I am now offering psychotherapy services by telephone and on a secure, HIPAA-compliant video-based platform.
If you or someone you know is overwhelmed and would benefit from talking with a caring professional, I invite you to contact me at (310) 383-1505 to schedule a confidential telehealth appointment today. Please don’t struggle alone.
