About Jessica Myszak
You were already stressed. Parenting, keeping up with the never-ending housework and laundry, working, managing it all. And now, things are going to get 100 times worse. Everyone is stuck at home, and tensions and emotions are high. You are terrified at the prospect of what could happen, but are also drowning in the daily minutia. Without your normal ways of coping, you need help. Teletherapy is a safe and effective way to get support from the comfort of your own home. Limited daytime and evening appointments are available to accommodate your family and work schedule. You may need support with managing your child’s behavior, or you may need help dealing with your own anxiety and stress. This is a scary time, and you don’t have to do it alone. Call today.
