Due to the current changes occurring in our communities, and the resulting increased levels of stress and anxiety being felt by many children, parents, and families, Root to Rise is now offering Teletherapy (video-based HIPAA-compliant therapy).  Caring for our mental and emotional health is vital during this time.  If you or
your children are experiencing increased anxiety, fear, depression, or behavioral challenges, please reach out.   Taking care of yourself will allow you to better handle the increased demands you may be shouldering, which translates into a more effective pandemic response with healthier families and communities.  Virtual play therapy, parent-child, maternal mental health, and adolescent through adult teletherapy now available. Reach out today.  If I cannot be of service, I will be happy to refer you elsewhere.  You do not have to struggle alone.
