Our world as we knew it has been dramatically changed due to COVID-19.

It continues to be a difficult, and at times, traumatic experience for us all.

Collective trauma from COVID-19 has impacted us all mentally, economically, emotionally, and physically. For some, these challenges continue.  Whatever you are feeling during this time is common and normal. Whether it be anger, frustration, grief, sadness, confusion, anxiety, or any other emotion.

You are not alone.
