During this time of social distancing, Women’s Counseling of Nashua is offering teletherapy to our current and new clients.
Life has changed dramatically overnight it seems. We are all trying to figure out how to juggle work demands while caring for our kids at home at the same time. Maybe you have older parents you’re worried about. There may be new financial stress if someone lost a job, or fears that a job may be lost during this national crisis. Maybe you’re on the “front lines” working as a nurse or in a grocery store. Either way you’re considered “essential” and have to go to work despite your own fears of becoming ill, or infecting others should you become ill. Despite all of this “new” stress, older stressors still remain. You may be struggling to manage symptoms of depression or anxiety, now made worse by this crisis. Or you may be continuing to try to navigate issues within your marriage, with your children, or a toxic relationship at work.
You’re needing someone to talk to about all of this old and new stress other than your partner, and your friends have enough on their plate, too.
We want you to know that we are here for you. Our teletherapy services offer you a safe, secure and convenient way for you to talk about these and other stressors with a licensed therapist. You can meet with your therapist from the comfort of your own home, office, or even your car if privacy is lacking elsewhere. Danielle, our nurse practitioner, is also available to meet with you and prescribe medications by video during this time.
We use a secure, convenient and HIPAA compliant platform you may already be familiar with called Google Meet. Your therapist will send you an “invitation” to join the session at the scheduled time. You will click on the link and wait in a virtual waiting room until your therapist joins you. All you need is a computer, tablet or phone with a camera and a mic as well as internet access.
We offer 30, 45, or 60-minute counseling sessions using video. Teletherapy is covered by most insurance plans. Now, more than ever, it’s important to prioritize both your physical and mental health. Let us be part of your support system.
