Keep Your Mental Health a Priority with Easy Access Virtual Visits

The holidays are a wonderful time for many, but with all the excitement and joy can come much anxiety and stress. With the long Christmas to-do list, added expenses and remembering loved ones who are no longer with us can make many feel the blues. 

Although it is hard to make time to get the care you need, it is important to keep your mental health a priority. CHI LakeWood Health offers the convenience of virtual visits (telehealth) with our Behavioral Health Provider, Sarah Gubbels, LICSW. In the car or at home, therapy can be anywhere you go. You can even have therapy when you are stuck in 10ft of snow! Don’t put your healthcare needs on the backburner this holiday season or any season for that matter. Call 218-634-3491 to schedule an appointment today!
