The Myths of Mindfulness

It’s all the buzz!  But what is it really?  I mean, I don’t have time to sit quiet for hours, nor can my mind get totally clear, so.... I’m not doing it.  Sound familiar?  We’d like to dispell myths about mindfulness and help you establish your practice of it- after all, 20 minutes per day (does not HAVE to be all at one time) significantly decreases depression and anxiety- so let’s get on it!

Girls Circle Fall 2014

Does your daughter struggle with these symptoms? Support and therapeutic intervention can be exceptionally successful to help them cope and move forward into adulthood without such a struggle. 

Our Girls Circle group has been praised as "the only time I've ever really opened up", "made her beam with smiles", and "helped her change so much". 

This group is a great way to provide your daughter with peer support and skills to cope with numerous self esteem, social, anxiety or depression concerns. 

This group has been so successful, we are facilitating another 8 weeks this fall!  The group will run on Wednesday evenings from September 24- November 12.
