This is a challenging time, and everyone needs to do their part. In a pandemic, demand is high for psychological services, including crisis intervention. My colleagues and I have been working hard to maintain continuity of care while rapidly adapting to Telehealth. If you choose not to keep an appointment, it is your responsibility to communicate this so others can access psychological services in a timely manner. If you ignore requests to confirm your appointment, you are harming community mental health by reducing access for others in need. In this time of massive stress and change, let’s all consider the greater good.

After six years trying to help uninsured New Yorkers through my role directing TherapySafetyNet, there's light at the end of the tunnel: Solid plans at affordable premiums with mental health coverage included by law.

This past weekend--a fast drive north to New Hampshire for my alma mater's 30 year anniversary celebration. I owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude to the clinical psychology program faculty who remain rock solid points of reference in my professional life.
