Please be advised that due to the Covid 19 pandemic, our practitioners are all seeing clients by video or audio, rather then in person. Contact your individual practitioner for details.
These are stressful and chaotic times full of uncertainty.
Take very good care of yourself:
Seek support in friends, family, counselors, therapists, coaches!
Take care of your body;
Practice mindful breathing
Allow your feelings: its ok to be sad, mad, shocked, scared, anxious, overwhelmed
Grieve the losses
Develop a habit of gratitude
Create routine, even in small increments
Nurture yourself with flowers, essential oils, tea, naps, netflix
Focus on the things you can control (yes, so much is out of our control, and while this is always true, it may be overwhelmingly true right now) A good mantra right now, The Serenity Prayer
Read a joyful book, watch fun shows or movies (its ok to distract yourself some of the time)
Take a break from media
Practice kindness towards your neighbors
Practice kindness towards yourself!
Try to be in the moment, all we can do is live One Day At A Time
You are strong, resilient, resourceful, and cared about!!!!
We all look forward to seeing you in person for sessions as soon as it is safe!
