Coronavirus... How to "Wash Your Hands" of Fear and Anxiety
At this point, you know the symptoms of the coronavirus but all this talk of the coronavirus can impact your mental health, too. It is nearly impossible to read the news, have a conversation, or scroll through Facebook without hearing about the pandemic.

Dear Past, Current and Future Clients,

We are always here for you, and especially now when you might need us more than ever. There is no doubt that this health crisis is causing so many of us to feel more anxious and fearful.. School closings, job loss, cancelled weddings, cancelled trips, social distancing, empty grocery shelves and financial stress etc. has us worried not only about our physical health but the effect it has on our mental health. You've gotten through many hardships before. You are strong and resilient and we know that you can get though this too. We care about all of our clients and we want to help you get through these unprecedented times.

We are continuing to offer you counseling; however for your protection all our sessions will be done virtually or by phone. Please reach out to us for more information.

Please take care of yourself, your loved ones and your community.

Be Well,

Risa Simpson-Davis, LCSW
Owner/Clinical Director
Staff at Modern Family Counseling

Have you started feeling anxious and depressed lately?

Is someone (or possibly everyone) in your family stressing you out?

Finding it difficult to cope, feel like you’re about to lose it?

Are you trying to do it all and find that you just can’t?

Times have changed and so has family dynamics. You aren't imagining this...life really has gotten harder.  There’s more pressure, bigger fears, greater responsibilities, and fewer clear cut answers than ever before. It’s not easy to know the right thing to do any more. 

If you’re feeling scared, alone, confused, stressed to the max, at your wit’s end, or deeply unhappy about something you don’t know how to change, we would like to help.
Whether it’s…..
  • a relationship that’s grown distant or rocky
  • a career that is unfulfilling or just all wrong for you
  • the challenge of parenting great kids in today’s world
  • self confidence crisis brought on by aging, weight gain, divorce or other changes
.....for whatever reason, the joy you used to feel has disappeared.
Part of you probably thinks you don’t need a counselor but there’s no denying that your life is making you miserable right now.
You’re searching for ….. something, maybe not even sure what…..and feeling mixed up about what you need, what you want, and where to turn.
We know what you’re going through. We work with people like you every day who hate to admit that life isn’t as perfect as they try to pretend.  It takes tremendous energy to hold it together, and get through each day.
We would like to help you find yourself again. As experienced professionals, we can help you
  • sort through confusing emotions and options
  • gain effective mood management and coping skills
  • make the best decisions possible under the circumstances
  • learn new ways to lower stress and increase confidence
  • feel better about yourself and your life
You need to be at the top of your game in love, at work, at home and in life. You deserve to feel happy, confident and like your best self every day.

The therapists at Modern Family Counseling are highly qualified and specialize in several different areas of concern.

Can't make it in person?  Call and ask about our telehealth phone sessions!
