We’re Living Through Anxious Times In NYC With COVID-19: Teletherapy For Anxiety Can Help
Whether you were blindsided by the pandemic and quarantine, or saw it coming weeks before everyone else, these are anxious times, as we’ve seen both in and out of our NYC teletherapy sessions. With the lack of reliable information, insufficient testing, and a stressful 24-hour news cycle coupled with social media, it is normal to experience some level of anxiety right now. However, it’s also easy to let your anxiety take over completely. Reaching out to us for a phone or video therapy session can change that.
When Dealing With The Stress Of Quarantine In Isolation, Online Therapy Can Be Stabilizing For Anxiety
For many, being locked inside your apartment or house for weeks on end–perhaps with no one to speak to but yourself, your coworkers, or a pet–can cause anxiety to spiral. Allowing this anxiety to flame doesn’t help either. Leaning into your fear and allowing it to drive your life has caused many people to drink much more than they would normally, to isolate from loved ones, to sleep in, and to forget basic hygiene and healthy eating habits. Even if you are channeling this stress into Zoom exercise classes or baking banana bread, your anxiety can still be in control, not you.
While inviting a therapist into your home to discuss these issues can feel vulnerable, teletherapy and video therapy for anxiety can be stabilizing. It is more important than ever to take care of both your physical and mental health during this crisis. We can help teach you the skills you need to regain or maintain control, as well as prevent excessive worry.
Phone And Video Therapy For Anxiety Can Help Create A Plan For Unprecedented Times
The reality of living during the unprecedented times and challenges of a global pandemic means that there’s no self-care blog or listicle that has the perfect answers that will work specifically for you. In remote therapy for anxiety, our online therapists work with you, as an individual, focusing on your strengths, as well as the deep roots of your anxiety and what is happening now. We will create a plan to lessen your anxiety, bring you back in connection with yourself, and put you (rather than the anxiety) back in the driver’s seat.
