mDuring the early months of Covid, I adapted my practice to continue to meet the spiritual and mental health needs of my clients. After several intense and challenging weeks of training, all sessions went online utilizing a HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform, https://doxy.me.
I'm excited to see the client benefits of this service. Sessions are easy to schedule, and are conducted face to face in the privacy of your own home or office. Results have shown this to be equally effective as in-person therapy for the majority of clients' situations. The only things needed are a private, well-lit room, access to strong internet, and your computer.
As this has been so well-received, I am now only seeing clients via this platform. Session hours remain as usual, 8 am -5 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
Covid has had a profound impact on all of us, as well as the rest of the world's population. Whether you've had Covid yourself, cared for loved ones with it, or perhaps lost a dear one to its complications, we have all been changed by its impact.
During these uncertain times, it's been more important than ever that we work to stay in contact with friends and loved ones. Make it a practice to reach out to someone else daily through phone, text or email. Uncertain environments can activate our God-given longing for connection and motivate us to cherish our loved ones in a fresh, creative way.
However, the most life-giving and necessary connection we each need to maintain is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Meeting Him through His word and communicating with Him in prayer must be our daily priority. It is there that we will be nourished by His words of strength and love, truth and mercy. He tells us:
"But for me it is good to be near God; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all your works." Ps 73:28 (ESV)
We will find no safer-or truly good-place than in His presence. I pray you will find in your refuge in Him as we move ahead, knowing we are secure in His strong love.
