Is ongoing daily stress taking its toll at work or home? Does it feel like the most important people in your life can't hear what you want or won't take "no" for an answer? Let's work together to manage stress and take control of emotional reactions and behaviors. When we're angry, hurt, afraid, or nervous we often react in ways that can make an already difficult situation worse. Or, we just freeze and it gets even bigger! It often feels like the more critical the situation, the less effective we are! We can help.
We teach methods/skills to change/manage emotional reactions so they don't control you. Find peace in the face of adversity. Bring more laughter into your life. Skills include: managing distress; dealing with difficult situations; focusing on what "is" rather than what "should be"; taking charge of emotions/behaviors.
This isn't about changing who you are; it's about learning new skills with support and guidance. You CAN learn to take charge of your life, your emotions, and your behaviors. Please contact us so we can begin to find a formula for the life you want to live.
