The fall is upon us and it’s the busiest time of year for us. We strive to meet the needs of all of our depressed patients during this time of much change.
As we turn the calendar to November we are reminded that giving thanks and taking time to recognize all that we should be grateful for is a central aspect of the season. Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday that is celebrated by many without any awareness of the energy that it brings. Making time for family and friends, taking days off work or school, dealing with the crowds on Black Friday, and transitioning into colder and shorter days, is a struggle for many. Whether you are excited about this time of year or challenged by it, we want you to know that we are here for you. If you are concerned that the fall season may set you back, speak to us about ways we can support you. Staying ahead of depression and anxiety this time of year is a key to happier holidays. We want to see you thrive and make the best of all the wonderful things this time of year has to offer.
We recently celebrated the birthday of our fabulous Patient Care Coordinator Alyssa. Many of you know Alyssa; she brings much joy to our front desk and is a huge support to our team. We also added lockers, so we have a nicer place for patients to secure their belongings. Lastly, an update on my end is that the clinic is growing. I have spent more time offsite, attending conferences and seeking and planning for a move to a new location within the same general area. My wonderful Physician Assistant, Mary Beth, has truly been my right hand. She is now leading the clinic on Thursdays and Fridays and I’m overjoyed with her partnership. I am grateful for the skill and compassion she brings to our patients and they have been very pleased with her great care. Together we make a great team!
Wishing you a delightful Thanksgiving!
