In this counseling group,  women learn coping skills to manage their emotions, tolerate day-to-day stressors and how to more effectively navigate relationships with partners, friends, co-workers, family members and those in other relationships.

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 motherhood.
  • 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.
