Thankfully, it isn’t often that we hear about virus outbreaks on a global scale. But with all the talk lately about COVID-19 (commonly referred to as Coronavirus), many of us are finding ourselves increasingly stressed and worried—about our health, the economy, our paychecks or everyday activities that we generally wouldn’t think twice about.

Take Charge of Your Life – Be Assertive!

What is CBT?
