COVID 19 Group Experience with a focus on Stress Management

With the event of COVID-19, everyone is a bit caught by surprise, potentially overwhelmed, and feeling the stress that uncertainty brings. We want to help by offering groups via video that allow participants to talk about thoughts and feelings, discuss ways to cope with stress and uncertainty, learn new tools to manage anxiety, and connect with others in a safe, virtual, way in order to help with some of the social isolation. This 4-week group is designed to offer support to any community member during this time who would benefit. The fee will be $25 per session and this is not covered by insurance, but the fee is low enough to be equal to a co-pay. To register, you will need to sign up with an email, and an intake form and credit card form will be sent to you with access to a client portal. Once you have filled out the forms, you will receive information about how to connect to the group.

Groups Available:

Mondays 12pm with Marlee Bardenett (3/23, 3/30, 4/6, 4/13/20)
