At Palmetto Counseling Services we understand that the current COVID-19 pandemic may impact you or your loved one’s mental health. If you need to schedule an appointment to preserve your mental health during this time, our licensed therapists are prepared to provide mental health support and are taking all precautions to keep everyone in our office safe.

Currently, we are working with major insurance companies to offer TeleHealth services; which will allow clients the option for secure video conferencing and to receive counseling services from one of our licensed therapists from the comfort and convenience of your own home.  

Please Note: If you are experiencing symptoms of cough, fever, shortness of breath or other flu-like symptoms, please contact our office to reschedule your appointment and let us know if you are interested in taking advantage of TeleHealth services.
