This question came in through our website: Ive been experiencing a lot of anxiety. It feels like I have tremors and I cant calm down.  Sound familiar? 

Some things to try: Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate.  Get some exercise. Take a break from the news. Reach out to your support network. Our Chief Medical Officer also recommends the app Breathe2Relax.

While many of our services are being provided by telehealth, not all of our clients have access to technology or needs that can be met remotely.  For those that need to be seen in person, we screen for symptoms and fever at the door.  Big thanks to Alaska Mask Makers for providing masks for our staff at our Ingra Building.
