This is resilience... one of the greatest things I endeavor to teach my clients about themselves.
Some food for thought...
It is now complete! In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a Reiki Master. I had my first "distance , virtual reiki session " here in my new office Saturday. I am excited about new beginnings! If you need some stress reduction, would like some deep relaxation, and /or healing, I am offering virtual distant reiki sessions as a special offering during this crisis, at a very discounted rate. I have just a few spots left on my calander. If you would like a session please PM me for details.
The new office is almost complete and open for business. I am still offering virtual sessions and hope to see you in person soon, as restrictions lift and social distancing is eased.
