Mental health professionals are hard to find. Too hard.
Had a psych NP throughout most of the pandemic. She moves out of state this past summer so passed to another in the practice. He told me today he’s leaving the state and time to figure out if I go to yet someone else in the practice or find someone new.
This is after being suggested to re-add a therapist to my support team, do the research, find one that sounds great, contact them via their website and get a response back that they’re not taking new clients. Sigh. Then put that on your contact form?
Also, with telehealth, the rules that disallow providers from serving across state lines need to go away. Really no need to require a mental health professional reside in the same state as the client with today’s tech.
