Being Nimble During Unprecedented Times
A letter from Insight’s Executive Director
We are certainly living in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 virus is a pandemic, and pandemics cause stress and panic. Just try to order a package of toilet paper or Clorox wipes online and notice how long it will take them to arrive. Society’s purchasing actions are indicators of just how understandably fearful we are. Insight Counseling Centers is needed now more than ever.
In considering how to best serve our current and future clients while also doing our part to “flatten the curve” of the virus’ spread, we made the tough decision to temporarily shift to a teletherapy-only service delivery model. The decision wasn’t made lightly. We are holding the tension between the importance of face-to-face therapy sessions alongside the tension of safety for our therapists and their families, our clients and their families, and the churches that house our therapy offices.
Last Friday, Clinical and Training Director Carol Smith and I met with the therapists (a few of us were in the room together, socially distanced; most were on the phone) to advise them of this shift in care delivery. Of course, everyone was sad, including me. But I noticed everyone pivot to a can-do, problem solving mode. They were inspiring!
Teletherapy is included in our current strategic plan, and we were going to roll it out in late summer or early fall. It was to be a supplemental offering to our in-office sessions. But now is not the time to adhere strictly to schedules. We must be nimble.
Once we are again seeing clients in our eight locations, teletherapy will continue to be offered to those who have transportation challenges as well as to anyone in Tennessee who does not have access to in-person, spiritually informed therapy where they live.
I hope you will continue to refer people to Insight Counseling Centers. We’re still here restoring lives to wholeness: mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Pam Brown, Executive Director
