COVID-19 Update

Let’s Find the Bright Side of COVID-19 Together


We know that there is a lot of stress related to COVID-19. On the national and local levels, there is a great deal of uncertainty, misinformation, and fear. It’s no surprise that many people are at home now really taking a closer look at their lives – the good, the bad, and the ugly. If you finally have the time to get to know yourself and make progress, we’re here to walk with you on that journey.

If you’re experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, or an increased sense of overwhelm during this time, know that you’re not alone. Counseling Works is here to support our communities through this time – We are currently accepting new clients, and for your safety and ours, we’re adjusting our scheduling to offer online therapy sessions to ensure we provide continuous service and support in the healthiest setting.

Our number one priority remains offering support for clients and our communities. From March 30th to April 7th, we are exclusively offering Telehealth counseling sessions (virtual online appointments). If you would like to schedule a visit, you can reach us via:
