2013 is getting off to its usual start in a flurry of snow, a flurry of activity, and a flurry of new clients. While I am always happy to see new faces in the office, it’s a reminder that the holidays in particular, and winter in general, are stressful times for relationships and individuals alike. Good mental health care is as vital as good physical health care; staying mindful and compassionate when managing stress and depression is every bit as important as getting a flu shot or upping your vitamin intake during the cold dark months, resting and eating well, walking carefully on snowy or icy surfaces, and not throwing your back out while shoveling!
I’d also like to remind current, new, or potential clients that my 24 hour cancellation notice policy does not apply in the event of bad weather. This is particularly good to know as we head into a wintry week in which flurries are forecast every day between now and next weekend. Allow yourself lots of extra time to travel, and if you can’t manage the travel just call or email on the day or prior to your session, and let me know you can’t make the scheduled appointment.
I hope everyone is doing well as we move into a new year, and if anyone needs a little boost in their homework or some additional resources for dealing with ongoing issues or situations, contact me for an appointment and we’ll try to get you moving in the right direction again!
