This season has found many of us utilizing the virtual world in order to maintain the rhythms of normalcy as much as possible. From company meetings to church services, this pathway has proven to be quite beneficial, providing a lifeline for the economy and connection. But we may also find ourselves disconnected from services that we may truly need, like mental health care.
As much as we are all working to maintain a sense of normalcy, we may also be experiencing thoughts that increase feelings that are making maintaining normalcy difficult to achieve. The growing number of job losses and the number of us finding ourselves struggling to meet basic needs are making it clear that mental health services are needed now more than ever. It may seem that seeking those services is not a viable option at this time. At Aubrey Counseling, we want you to know getting the services you need IS a viable option through the virtual pathway and telemental health.
