Psychotherapy and the ‘pandemic’ of telehealth

By Tricia Stehle
As a psychotherapist, like everyone , I had to move my caseload to Telehealth when the pandemic hit . And I hate it . I have found that there is a grief process that not too many seemto be talking about with this move - that none of us asked for . I discuss why I hate it , the phases I’ve gone thru , fears of the future , and encourage everyone to talk about this grief process that was added onto the grief we are all dealing with - in the midst of these troubling times .

The grief no one is talking about : Being a Psychotherapist and hating Telehealth
Overnight , like all of us , I was forced to move my Psychotherapy practice from face to face sessions to Telehealth when the global pandemic hit . I hate every minute of it. In my opinion, therapists are not talking enough about the grief process associated with it . Too many as I have seen are robotically going thru it , while being told , ‘just be grateful you are still working ‘. I outline the phases I’ve gone thru since this started , my own grief , my fears , and my disdain for what I say , ‘we didn’t sign up for when we got this degree ‘.
