In this counseling group, you will learn coping skills to manage your emotions and those of their children. You will also gain concrete methods to better tolerate day-to-day stressors and to how to effectively  navigate relationships with spouses, family members and those in other relationships.

This skills group is especially helpful for those struggling with depression or anxiety symptoms and/or having difficulty managing feelings of  guilt, worry and anger. This counseling group will teach coping skills needed to manage the transition into parenthood and to navigate ongoing life and relationships challenges.

This group will focus on four skill-building areas:

  • Mindfulness skills to help stay in the present moment and increase positive experience.
  • Distress tolerance skills to help manage the emotional and physical challenges of parenthood.
  • Emotional regulation skills to gain control over intense feelings.
  • Communication and interpersonal skills to become more effective in relationships.

* This group incorporates skills developed by Marsha Linehan, creator of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT was originally used to treat people with severe mental health & relationship issues. It was soon discovered that this approach is helpful to people experiencing a wide range of issues: managing stress, overwhelming emotions & relationship problems. DBT is a evidence-based approach that anyone can benefit from.
