2.13 - Surviving the Holidays during COVID

Dede Norungolo, LPC, LADThe holiday season can be challenging for many in the LGBTQ+ community, especially those who may be ostracised from their families. Adding to this stress, the pandemic gave us quarantines, social-distancing, and mask mandates. British writer Damian Barr wrote "We are not all in the same boat. We are in the same storm. Some have super-yachts. Some have just one oar." Equally of concern is the difference we all have in coping abilities. In this episode, licensed professional counselor Dede Norungolo shares how she and her family are dealing with the new realities of COVID holidays, and she shares some excellent coping tips and strategies.
