The offices of Ginny Estupinian are open and operational during the COVID-19 crisis to support you. Your mental health is as important as your physical health, and as such, psychologists are considered an essential business to assist you during this time.
You have choices to access our services
You can choose to:
1. Make an appointment to utilize our online Telehealth platform (click here). I have effectively used this system for the last couple of years with many of my existing clients. This option is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to have a therapy session, but not feeling well or unable to travel for whatever reason.
2. As stated above, my office is considered an essential business, and this allows clients to come in for appointments. Nonetheless, your health and safety are of foremost importance. Therefore, office appointments will comply with social distancing requirements, as outlined in the order. My office chairs are set 6 feet away from each other, but still provide for a private and personal session. Furthermore, I will not be able to see anyone who is suffering from any COVID-19 symptoms for the safety of everyone. However, should a client have symptoms or not want to come into the office, the Telehealth option stated above is still available to them.
Dealing with Anxiety and Depression During This Time
During these unprecedented and challenging times, it is reasonable to experience anxiety or depression. There is so much that is unknown, and this, in of itself, fuels a lot of anxiety. Currently, U.S. health experts do not fully know how this virus will play out.
Furthermore, news reports about the coronavirus and the possibility that it could become more widespread contribute to making some people anxious. For many people, they feel that they went from feeling well and prosperous to extremely fearful.
Now, add to all this the requirement of sheltering in place, and we can all begin to feel isolated and overwhelmed, which can lead to increase feelings of anxiety and depression.
