In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, PCSSS is offering Telehealth services to our clients. We are grateful we are able to provide uninterrupted counseling services through Telehealth, using online formats that allow for both audio and video conferencing, as well as over-the-phone sessions.
We are also accepting new referrals for Telehealth psychotherapy during this pandemic. To begin the referral process, please call or email using the contact information above.
If you have already spoken with a counselor and are preparing for your first Telehealth therapy session, you can access all of the necessary intake paperwork using the 3 links below.
Below you will find links to some helpful resources to tend the mind, heart, and spirit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please explore how these resources could help you during this time. We also welcome you to share these links with your loved ones as you see fit.
We post this offering knowing that the COVID-19 pandemic is being referred to as “a global trauma,” and thus hope that these links will have a positive effect on helping you and your loved ones manage difficult experiences during unprecedented times.
While important to compassionately acknowledge the gravity of this pandemic, it is equally important to acknowledge the capacity each of us has in protecting ourselves from developing Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in response to this global event. In other words, a traumatic experience does not necessarily mean that one will develop PTSD.
One characteristic that minimizes the probability of developing PTSD is psychological resiliency. Psychological resiliency can be built by practicing sound self-care on a regular basis, as well as during an acute phase of a traumatic experience. In short, building resiliency interferes with the trajectory of PTSD, disrupting the pathway that shapes a traumatic experience into a traumatic disorder.
