The last few months (feels like years) have been a series of constant changes in how we do pretty much everything. The biggest change for many is the new task of working completely from home during a pandemic. If you are like me, you never really planned to work from home ever! Being a therapist in-person work is what I have always wanted to do. I’ve spent many hours setting my office up to create the therapeutic space I feel is the most conducive to healing. But now, I’m lucky if I get to go into my office once a month, and I haven’t seen a client face to face in over two months.
