Online Counseling in San Francisco, CA

A Strange New World

We're living in strange and troubling times with COVID-19 still causing many of us to fear for our well-being and the well-being of our family and friends while sociopolitical unrest, including the assault on the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, women and many others, increases our negative thoughts and feelings. Very few of us have ever experienced anything like this before, and some are justifiably anxious about the future. While COVID-19 may not pose as serious of a threat, many continue to work from home to be safe while many others have simply grown accustomed to doing so because of the convenience and flexibility it offers. 

So Close, Yet So Far Away

Unfortunately, working from home may prevent us from accessing the in-person benefits of our support systems, which means we may endure the challenges of everyday life and any anxiety or depression we experience feeling even more isolated and alone. While online news sites and social media provide easy and efficient ways to stay connected and informed, constantly consuming heartbreaking news and bleak forecasts for the future can increase our distress and further compromise our mental health. Staying in touch with friends and family is more important than ever, but given the circumstances, you may understandably need more support than they’re able to provide. 

Stay Connected

While you may find meeting in person preferable, teletherapy is an excellent alternative to get the support you need from the safety and convenience of your home. If you decide teletherapy is a worthy option, contact me today for a free video consultation so we can explore if we're a good fit and discuss next steps. I provide an authentic and supportive space so you can explore your thoughts and feelings openly, and I combine evidence-based techniques with a practical approach to help you solve your problems, increase your resilience and improve your ability to cope during these troublesome times.
