PEOPLE WHO INITIALLY WERE RESILIENT AND REAYLL RALLIED TO GET THROUGH THE STRESS, AS IT CO NTINUED ON FOR MONTHS AND INTO TWO YEARS, PEOPLE HAVE HIT A WALL. THEY ARE SUFFERING MORE AND WE ARE SEEING A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOKGIN FOR TREATMENT. EDIE: AS YOU POINTUT,HE T, THE IMPACT WAS DIFFERENT? WHAT ADVICE? >> THE PANDEMIC HAS MADE A PERFECT STORM. IT IS NOT THAT WERE A UNDER LONG-TERM STRESS IT IS WE ARE DISCONNECTED ANDSO ITED FROM OUR SOCIAL SUPPORT NETWORKS. ONE OF THE THINGS I EMPHASIZE WITH FOLKS IS TO SELF MONITOR. BECAUSE YOU MAY NOT BE SEEING FRIENDS AS OFTEN OR FAMILY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE IN TOUCH WITH YOURWN O EMOTIONS. HOW YOU ARE DOING, ARE YOU NOTICING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR INABILITY? YOU ARE NOT SLEEPING AS WELL? YOU ARE LOSING YOUR TEMPER? AGAIN, THE BEST THING THAT I REALLY RECOMMEND FOR PEOPLE IS TO REACH OUT AND GET CONNECTED WITH SOMEONE IF THEY ARE NOTICING CHANGES.

WE HAVE HAD A CONSIDERABLE EXPERIENCE WITH IT NOW, ALMOST TWO YEARS, I HAVE TO SAY IT HAS WORKED WELL. IT HAS WORKED WELL FOR OUR CLIENTS. BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE TO PARK. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO DRIVE ON THE FREEWAY OR DO THE THINGS WE OFTEN HAVE TO DO TO GET TO AN APPOINTMENT. THEY CAN SET UP THEIR COMPUTER IN THEIR LIVING ROOM AND I HAVE HAD PATIENTS WHO HAVE DONE SESSIONS FROM THEIR PHONE IN THEIR CAR. TH LVEEAEY WORK AND GO OUT TO THE CAR AND GO FOR HALF AN HOUR OR 45 MINUTES SO THEY CAN WORK IT INTO THEIR DAYN I A SEAMLESS WAY. IN SOME WAYS IT IS VERY COMFTIORNG BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT THE PERSON IS THERE BUT THEY ARE NOT RIGHT THERE. IT GIVES PEOPLE DISTANCE. IT IS KIND OF SCARY TO GO INTO A THERAPIST OFFICE. EDIE: YOU HEAV THE FLEXIBILITY AND GET THE HELP THAT YOU NEE
