COVID-19 Resources for Therapists

As the COVID-19 epidemic unfolds, I know that many of us are worried for our well being, those of loved ones and clients, and the health of our businesses.

In the midst of every crisis, there are opportunities to serve well and think differently about how we go about things.

In particular, I think this is a prime opportunity to think about what it means to be a clinician in private practice.

In other words, how can we use our skills to continue to serve our clients but also move our impact and income beyond the therapy room.

In that spirit, the STC team has put together a number of free resources to help us navigate this season.

We’re in this together.

Also wanted to give a special thanks to my web designer, Ciril Mathew from CMD Graphic and Web, for taking a vision I had to create an all in one COVID-19 resource for us and putting this page together
