Though not listed as one of the happiest in which to live
The city by the bay; famous amenities, great employment, extraordinary schools. What more could one ask?
“In a population of just under one million, more than half hold a bachelor’s degree while just under one quarter earn over $150,000 ; however, the aggregate cost of living in San Francisco is 84.3% greater than the national average not to mention house costs soaring well over twice”. (Excerpted from Areavibes.com)
All this does not come free and no one gives it to you. It must be earned. That takes its toll in time and energy. It has been said, sometimes jokingly, that nothing is certain but death, taxes…and deadlines. There is less and less sleep while, at the same time, job demands ramp up. Stress is a fact of life- an unacknowledged epidemic, the true scale of which is still unknown. Chronic stress is linked to depression (from Sybille Hildebrandt in Science Nordic, 2012)
So how do we find time to take care of ourselves?
This is where Counseling on Demand comes in. You need not go through your stress alone. With our support, you can get through these times. Our counselors specialize in stress- related depression and anxiety.
So you see, we can help. We offer Privacy, timeliness, convenience,
flexibility and effectiveness:
- Privacy You needn’t leave your favorite/private place- a room at home/apartment, workplace, out of state- even out of country. Finally no one needs to know your personal business.
Timeliness You need not wait for an appointment. We are there 24/7. You can begin in 24 hours or less. And you can begin immediately to talk with one of us about what you are facing now.
- Convenience If you want a face-to-face, we can Skype you on your computer, cell phone or tablet right away.
- Flexibility We can work around your schedule- even if it changes without notice.
- Effectiveness Studies have shown that on line counseling has been more effective than face-to-face office visits; for example, we offer between session emails and texts for your questions, worries, thoughts, etc. to help you “cement” what was done in session as well to help you track yourself until we “meet” again.
