Gives Back

Live Well Counseling Services, LLC, is proud to announce a new initiative to give back to healthcare workers during the Covid-19 pandemic. We know healthcare workers have unique experiences and stresses unmatched to other workers during this time. This is our effort to give back to them during this time.

Live Well Counseling Services, LLC, has two Masters of Social Work students starting in January and will be available until roughly August. Normally these students would be counseling (under the supervision of Bethany Borrenpohl, MSW LCSW, and practice owner) some of our own clients. However, we thought it could be helpful to offer free counseling services to a limited number of people during this unprecedented time.

The people receiving these free services will receive counseling weekly. They will receive these services from a student under supervision. These sessions are not for crisis intervention and we do not replace 911 or a psychiatrist.

Those receiving these services do not need to only be doctors or nurses, anyone working in a hospital, long-term care setting, or other health care setting, in any position, are eligible for services. We encourage anyone to apply. We will contact those who will receive the services the week of January 8th. A person must have reliable phone service, access to internet (sessions will be held via telehealth), and sessions must be consistent. If you feel you are not benefiting from services, you of course have the right to terminate at any time.

Those receiving these services will be asked for their review of services at the end of the duration of the sessions. Feedback is important and we greatly appreciate it.

Those receiving these services do not have to be personally impacted by Covid-19. We know the pandemic has only complicated our already complex lives, so the only requirement is it be a healthcare worker. The sessions can cover any of the following, but not limited to: grief, depression, anxiety, relationship strain, or fear.

To request an application, please contact to ask for an application or to submit one. You may also contact us on our Facebook page at Live Well Counseling Services, LLC. To inquire with phone calls, please contact Bethany Borrenpohl, Practice Owner – 618-317-1537 or Brittany Irwin, Director of Business Development – 618-521-5141.

We look forward to hearing from you!
