I've had clients in the past (30+ years of experience) that struggled with hair pulling (Trichotillomania) but it seems to have increased over the past few months to the point of concern for me. When it was only one or two clients per year, this week, it has been four clients that I encountered, enough for me to say this is a problem. I encouraged my clients to seek therapy and use Fidget toys to keep their fingers occupied.
