Weekly Blog and/or Questions

We are not so different. Everyone has issues, baggage, faults, imperfections, negative thoughts, good days, bad days, health problems and questions. And we all hit a wall at some point. It’s life and nothing to be ashamed about. However, our society has placed a stigma on asking an outsider for help. And that’s a shame because we are together in this and through personal experiences, forms of education, and reasoning, we are able to help each other through this maze of existence.

In my clinical practice I engage with a variety of people and have found that though packaged in different problems or presentations the questions and concerns are essentially the same. So, I will address a question, concern, or needed skill each week here that comes up frequently in sessions.

And one other thing, I learn something new from every person I encounter. It is a privilege to meet and work with my clients. And this is a way to pass all those life skills on.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone should:

* Clean your hands often, either with soap and water for 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

* Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Put distance between yourself and other people (at least 6 feet).

* Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.

* Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

* Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces daily.

* CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

* Cloth face coverings may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.
