first of all, a big virtual hug to you
these are tough times.
i decided to keep my therapy practice open and offer sessions virtually. i look forward to supporting you and connecting with you in this new way. i am still researching whether insurance will cover telehealth and the policies are updated daily. if you are using insurance to pay for sessions, i recommend calling your insurance company to verify that telehealth is a part of your plan.
take a deep breath. exhale slowly. connect with yourself in this moment. drop down into your body. ask yourself, "what is the smallest, kindest thing i can do for myself right now?"
do that one small thing.
and to close, here are some words of wisdom from various sources, some guideposts for your path forward...
