Therapy is still quite dandy here in Portland Oregon, but I know the blog has been quiet for some time. Hope you are doing all right where ever you are reading this from.
So, I have been rather preoccupied with getting prepared for my state licensure exam. That’s a big long topic in it self, but the punchline of it is that once I am considered a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) I will have the option of billing health insurance for current and new clients. Being licensed is the requirement healthcare companies require before “allowing” counseling services to be reimbursed. How nice of them. Really.
Up until now, I have only been able to accept cash. So, this is a big step and a potentially very positive leap forward.
I will share more once it is official.
One other reason the blog has been so slow to return, ironically, is the Internet itself. I find I dislike using it more and more. Specifically, I find myself wasting oodles of time not working by all that the Internet can distract us with. I even opened an Instagram account for goodness sake. Lately I do not feel productive or helped by the web’s omnipresence in our culture. Which is ironic since you are only reading this blog because of the Internet. I try to share interesting articles on the Facebook page here, but that is also a destination I mean to avoid as much as possible.
So, that’s my dilemma. How to keep writing blogs that I believe are helpful and enjoyable for me to write in a medium that is really a drag.
And that leads me to a general question, if any of you would like to respond. How do you all deal with the Internet?
I will try to blog again before the end of October. Maybe another Halloween themed article or something.
