The pandemic has caused more than a year of uncertainty, isolation, abrupt disruptions, grief and loss. No one knew how the world would change – especially for our children.

Lucy Listens provides up to 4 hours of telehealth therapy for parents and their children. This service is provided by a licensed mental health counselor at no cost to help families survive and thrive through the COVID-19 crisis and find resilience, courage and meaning in the most trying of times.

Many children who have had no emotional or behavioral issues prior to this crisis are currently experiencing:

  • Anxiety or behavioral issues tied to recent adjustments
  • Withdrawal and lack of communication with parents and family
  • Loss of appetite
  • Lack of attention and focus
  • Nightmares, night terrors and sleep loss
  • Mood swings
  • Fear of getting Covid-19 or losing a parent/loved one
  • Stress from adjusting to virtual learning
  • Social and emotional challenges due to separation from friends and classmates
  • Grief due to separation from grandparents or other family members

Lucy Listens is here to help.
