Tamara Hubbard, licensed clinical professional counselor, speaks to host Jen Jobrack on how food allergy families can manage during the Coronavirus crisis. Tamara offers great advice on how to “challenge worry thoughts” on issues like the food supply or what if your child has anaphylaxis and needs the hospital. The counselor has ideas for self-care in Coronavirus times. She speaks about replacing anxiety with resolve, planning and readiness. You’ll come away from this podcast saying: “I can do this, we will get through this.”
