Choosing Love and Gratitude over Fear

Choosing Love and Gratitude over Fear

With the escalation of fears over the CoronaVirus, we can get lost in the feelings of being overwhelmed and powerless.  While focusing on our physical care is important, we also need to focus less on fear and more on love and gratitude.   Fear makes it difficult for us to see clearly and to listen with our heart.  Love weaves and connects.  Love reminds us that we are all in this together and when one of us suffers, we all suffer.  Gratitude reminds us to focus on what we have instead of what we are lacking.  When we practice being grateful, fear cannot survive.

Today, examine if you are speaking words of fear or speaking words of love and gratitude.  We have the power to choose our responses and our actions to this virus.   For the next few weeks, redirect your fear to the opportunity to love yourself and others and to be grateful for what you have been given. May we all remember we are intricately connected and how we react will determine the outcome of this virus.

Response to the CoronaVirus

Like so many of you, I have spent the last several days and weeks learning about the coronavirus and how it is impacting our world. With that in mind, I wanted to keep you abreast of my response to this threat.

I am closely following the Center for Disease Control and our state and local government guidelines and recommendations on the steps I can take to help prevent the spread of the virus.

  • I am wiping down all surfaces with Clorox after each visit.
  • I am washing my hands after each client.
  • I am practicing social distancing. When I sit in my chair, the distance from the couch to the chair measures 6 feet, 3 inches.
  • I will greet you either with a bow or an elbow shake – no hugs or handshakes.
  • If you are ill, please stay home until you feel better.

For this reason, I will remain open to serve you in person.  I am also verifying with the insurance companies that they will cover on-line visits in the event the outbreak escalates to a point where meeting in person is no longer feasible.  When I have definitive information, I will get back with you.  I would also recommend you check with your insurance company to see if your plan covers ”Tele-health” for behavioral health providers.

Please know my primary purpose is to help you stay safe. In the event, you have any questions, please let me know.
