Stress Management Psychoeducational Group

Has stress thrown your life out of balance?

Many people are either unaware of or ignore the early warning signs of stress. Often, folks don't take action until their stress reaches full-blown burnout, their health starts to suffer, or something very serious happens. Others keep their head down and power through life, only to realize later on when they pick their head up, they've lost the important things, such as their partner, their relationship with their kids, and the ability to relax & enjoy life.

In this group, we will explore how to create, develop, and achieve your goal of better managing your stress using SMART goals. When you use SMART, you can create clear, attainable and meaningful goals, and develop the motivation, action plan, and support needed to achieve them. Each week we will learn and practice one or more techniques related to the main areas that tend to throw people’s lives out of balance. 


  • Virtual group running this summer, July 21 - Aug 25, Fridays from 2:00pm-3:30pm
