Freaked out about the quarantine? We hear you and we wanna help!
Are you stressed out from the lack of social interaction that you used to have before the quarantine? Cabin Fever...Imprisoned...Plague Dread. These are all terms to describe the anxiety, fear, stress, sadness, depression, loneliness, frustration, and anger that many of us are feeling during this quarantine. Between working from home, lay offs, helping the kids with school, the lack of social interaction, and being in close confines with your family or roommates, this isn't always an ideal situation for everyone.
We hear you. Social distancing is difficult.
In order to interact with people outside of our homes, we are proposing two new therapy/support groups for existing patients to combat these feelings of isolation and stress.
The first group we are proposing is strictly for healthcare and medical professionals. These people are our heroes right now. They are in a unique position as nurses, doctors, professionals, and other support staff during the COVID-19 pandemic; they are essential workers and are under an extreme amount of stress and are risking their safety for us.
The second group is essentially for everyone else: the moms and dads, the grandparents, the teachers, the "non-essential" business owner and employee, and those working from home.
Both groups will be done on doxy.me and will have the ability to vent the angers and frustrations, laugh, cry, and to potentially make friendships that can continue long after the quarantine is over. Essentially we have the ability to support each other and not be alone during this difficult time.
If this is something you are interested in, text Rachel, let her know during your next session, or email Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
