"Sometimes, just the act of venting is helpful. Counseling provides a safe haven for precisely that kind of free-ranging release"

Although we are considered essential workers and we can continueto see clients in office, I believe it is important that we continue to practice social distancing to lessen the spread of Covid 19.

Therefore, I am providing telehealth services at reduced rates to better serve those that are finding it difficult to cope during Covid 19. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out via cell phone (954-519-7791) or email ([email protected])

*Please note that I do not provide therapy via fb messenger but I will answer questions and inquiries 😊*

Here are a few healthy coping skills to help if you're struggling with Anxiety and Depression during this time.

1. Take time to meditate, there is something called guided meditation in which your focus is on the instructions rather than your thoughts, this helps to refocus your attention and can place you in a relaxing state. (Youtube has options as well.) When I do this with my younger clients, I have them think about their happy place or their own private island. I ask them who is there, what do they see, hear, smell etc. You would be surprised at how many angry moods turned into happy moods lol.. Also practice deep breathing and counting to 10 during meditation. You can complete this in intervals.

2. Limit your intake with caffeine and alcohol, these are major triggers for Anxiety and Depression. Alcohol is a mood altering substance that can increase Anxiety and Depression. Consuming too much alcohol can also trigger or induce other mental health disorders such as Psychosis and make signs and symptoms of other disorders worse.

3. Exercise and make sure to eat a well balanced meal! Not eating a balanced diet or not eating at all can lead to irritability!

4. Stay positive and focus on what you can control rather than what you cannot! Use a lot of positive self talk. You would be surprised as to how 1 negative thought about ourselves or a situation can alter our whole mood and last all day! If you catch yourself engaging in those automatic negative self talks,(first set of negative thoughts that play in your head when faced with a situation) try something called thought stopping, this is where you IMMEDIATELY interrupt that thought,once you become aware. You can doing this by just saying STOP! Then shift your focus on something else. YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR THOUGHTS!

5. Journal writing, if you find that you have no one to talk to or you're too embarrassed to tell anyone what you're going through (I've heard this from several Bahamians), then write it down in a journal. Sometimes we keep our emotions boiled up to the point where we can't control them and we want to explode! Journal writing can be just as effective as talking to someone in person, you just won't receive any feedback 😊. Another journal writing idea that can help you to remain positive is a gratitude journal. Every day or week, write down a few things you are gratefu for.

Remember, change comes from within! I can't make you change but I can help guide you on that path to make different decisions! I'm always open to answering questions. I love mental health but most of all I love helping people, I love my Bahamian people and I love sharing knowledge!

One of my favorites..often times people struggle with some form of sexual dysfunction throughout their lives. They might feel as though its the end of their world. Psychotherapy and psychoeducation are great ways to start the coping process.
