I believe that mental health conditions can be compared to physical injuries. For example when you sprain your ankle, you need to go to see a specialist. She/he will prescribe you some anti-inflammatory medications - maybe Ibuprofen and some Cortisone shots. Then you will need to attend physical therapy (PT). If you work hard during your PT appointments, your ankle will get better and you will need less medication. The same can be said about mental health disorders.

These are strange and disturbing times we are currently living through. While we have to practice physical distancing, our fundamental need for connection has never been more urgent. If you have been considering the idea of psychotherapy or maybe medications for a mood or anxiety disorder or insomnia, our current climate has likely kicked that need into high gear. Remote meetings are not optimal, they can offer a bridge for connection, which can help you get through this weird time.

Life is a journey which may be complicated by multiple issues. These include strained relationships, divorces, drug abuse, self harm behaviors, and losses. Traumas can result in low self-esteem, fear of intimacy, PTSD and chronic depression. Persistent traumas can result in negative core beliefs such as "I don't belong or deserve".
