The usual reasons for yellowing of palm leaves are over watering, dry air, underwatering, cold air, or excessive minerals in the water. Try misting the leaves to increase humidity around the plant, keeping the soil moist, but not soggy wet and keeping the plant out of drafts. You may want to use bottled rather than tap water if you know your water is very hard. Bright, indirect light should be fine for your palm. Hope your plant recovers soon!
