As the novel coronavirus and COVID-19 continue to impact the functioning of our daily lives, it becomes increasingly important to prioritize your mental wellness. This period of uncertainty can present a range of challenges in coping and accommodating moment-by-moment changes.

During this time of physical distancing, continue to enhance your social connections with others. Check in with family and friends, listen, and voice your own experience. Counseling can also help. At APWC, we are continuing to offer therapy through our secure telehealth services. Telehealth allows you to have face-to-face (video) contact with your counselor or psychologist from the safety of your own home. If you would like to schedule an appointment, Dr. Palacios is accepting new clients. Please note that due to licensing regulations, we are only able to work with clients residing in the state of Alabama. Scheduling information is available here.
