Expanding Your Comfort Zone

Expanding Your Comfort Zone

Presented by Sally Gardner, LCSW

What often stops us from doing the things we love is fear. The anxiety of trying something new can activate your nervous system and become unbearable. This discomfort leads to avoidance. Learn skills to calm your nerves and gently stretch your comfort zone. When you slowly expand, you open yourselves to new possibilities and a more joyful, fun life.

Relationship in Motion: Real Time Learning as a Couple

Relationship in Motion: Real Time Learning as a Couple

Presented by Shirley Price, LPC and Alan Rutherford, LPC Intern

Arguing is part of being in a relationship. Couples often get lost in WHAT they are in conflict about and sped a lot of time trying to change each other’s perceptions. A productive argument is really about the HOW. Imagine actually feeling heard and understood by your partner even if there isn’t agreement.

Learn the steps to manage conflict. Each couple will be privately coached on putting the steps into action with a situation from your own relationship with the help of a counselor. Get immediate feedback and individualized instruction to be able to continue to put the steps into action at home. Limited to 12 couples.

WHEN: Saturday, December 2, 10am-1pm

WHERE: The Northwest Catholic Counseling Center
