Let’s be honest, 2020 took a toll on a lot of us and it was not what we were expecting! Are current work, relationship, and family concerns making it difficult and overwhelming to function? Are you finding yourself frequently worried, overwhelmed or anxious? Have you felt that due to COVID you are struggling more to manage your anxiety? If any of these questions resonate with you, this group is for you!

Many of us struggle with anxiety at a variety of levels. For most of us, it masks itself in worry, stress, and feelings of being overwhelmed, which can impact our everyday lives. That is where this group comes in, as we believe that for many women, it is helpful to talk to someone about these very concerns in order to gain new tools and support. This group is ideal for adult women ages 18-60. We provide a safe, confidential, and honest environment to explore thoughts and feelings and learn new skills while surrounded by other women who are struggling with similar issues.

In this 6-week series, we will be utilizing tools that have been proven effective in managing anxiety. This series will help you better understand anxiety along with its function and purpose in your life, while also learning new skills to decrease and manage your anxiety. You will get an opportunity to practice skills in group and gain support from other group members.
