My primary focus is still on telehealth, as I have found it to be more accessible for many clients. Parents aren’t having to ferry their adolescents around between home, school, and the therapy office, and instead can give some control to their preteen or teen to set, maintain, and attend sessions. And since I am not having to take time between sessions to sanitize the office, I am able to see more clients, especially in the afternoons and evenings.
Telehealth has made it easier for me to take time away, and to focus more on self-care. I have been taking care of my own needs to be able to better serve my clients. And my cat definitely appreciates that I’m home more so he can harass me for treats.
