Wednesday Wellness 4-1-1

 

These are difficult times. Life as we know it has been altered and many of us are scared, looking for answers.
Our very own Morning Show co-host, Courtney Kelley, is a clinical therapist who devotes her life to helping others cope in times of stress.
Every Wednesday morning at 6:10 AM, Courtney will talk about ways to cope with solitude, anxiety, and family strain, in hopes of providing you with solutions for navigating our new normal.
