Mondays 5-6pm for 8 weeks
2023 Group Dates:
If you are:
Finding yourself having to miss or take time off work due to your trauma symptoms?
Feeling withdrawn from wanting to hang out with your besties, family, or partner because you are so exhausted from stress?
Annoyed with life at the end of a long day and just want to retreat to your bedroom and lock the door?
Struggling with headaches, overeating, or sleep problems?
The cost of not solving these problems...
Risk having to take more time off work, losing your job or having to feel dysregulated while trying to make a living whether that's at home, home office or an out of home job.
Feeling relationships being strained and damaged from your ongoing anger, anxiety frustration and stress.
Experiencing weight gain, exhaustion and more health problems because of all of the stress.
Having zero motivation to exercise, even though you KNOW movement would help you.
Wasting precious self-care time by scrolling endlessly on social media to avoid your feelings.
Enough is enough!
Go from withdrawn, anxious and overwhelmed to confidently and mindfully self-regulate in times of stress.
During this group you will learn:
How to develop a toolbox of mindfulness strategies for stress reduction for YOU, personalized for what you feel comfortable with...not what the gurus all say is good for you.
Practice repeatable experiential exercises including meditation, journaling and trauma sensitive yoga to get a taste for what you benefit most from.
Experience a 1-hour in home retreat-well deserved!
Create an easy Mindfulness Plan for daily use after group.
PLUS: Lifetime access to recorded Meditations/Exercises and Group Workbook

Understanding of how trauma influences our brains and behavior.
Improved ability to access coping tools to reduce moments of trauma triggers, anxiety and stress.
