Palm Desert Hypnosis is now online
It’s official, Palm Desert Hypnosis is now online for good. In the past two weeks I have made the decision to close the physical office of Palm Desert Hypnosis and offer medical hypnosis and counseling 100% online.
Had you asked me at the beginning of March, I would have told you that I planned on seeing clients in my Palm Desert Hypnosis office for another 3 to 5 years. But, that was before Covid-19. Since March 19, I have been meeting with all clients online.
As I study the information available on Covid-19 and consider the vulnerable health condition of most of my clients, it has become clear that it will be months before it will be safe for us to meet in person. I also recently had a meeting with a colleague where we met with social distancing while wearing masks. It became abundantly clear to me that I wearing masks made the communication challenging. I could not tell her facial expression nor could she tell mine. That is not how I choose to offer hypnosis, coaching and counseling.
Online telehealth sessions allow us to safely see each other’s facial expressions while maintaining the quality and integrity of the therapy being provided. My first experience with telehealth was on the phone in 1997 with weight loss hypnosis that proved to be highly effective. In recent years, live online video sessions have allowed intimate personal sessions with people worldwide.
Palm Desert Hypnosis Telehealth
Letting go of a physical office carries with it a host of emotions. For the past 23 years I’ve had 1 to 4 offices all at the same time where I met with people who were ready to create changes in their life. I have been blessed by the hundreds of people that I have met with over the years and I give thanks for those opportunities. Their are so many memories that these walls hold sacred.
I will miss the hand shakes and hugs that come with sharing a common space but the reality of Covid-19 demands that we look out for each other. I do believe that wearing a mask is a true sign of respect for others; it is not an impingement on one’s freedom. I have come to realize that in sharing an office building with others who do not hold that value is not safe for my clients, my elderly neighbors and for my wife who have compromised immune systems and that I am unwilling to risk their health and safety.
People throughout the Coachella Valley have warmly welcomed me to our new home and I am so grateful to you. I will continue to be active in the community and look forward to the day when our social service organizations can gather us together in person.
Telehealth allows me to meet with you live online while protecting your health and safety from the comfort of your own home. While I do not expect to have the honor to share in your life stories for another 23 years, I do look forward to participating in your journey for several more years to come.
