Counseling During Isolation
In response to COVID-19, Patricia Kim, a long-standing Olio professor and social worker by trade, has offered her services directly to the Think Olio community.
Patricia will be focusing on mental health during isolation and providing a space to discuss our anxieties at the moment. We’ll also be sharing coping skills and tools that can help us get through these times.
Housemates, partners, individuals and anyone who feels called to this kind of meeting are encouraged to sign-up. We are so lucky to have Patricia offering her amazing listening skills, compassion and therapeutic tools. We hope you’ll take advantage of the opportunity.
