Beyond Words: Using Art to Hear Your Inner Voice

Beyond Words: Using Art to Hear Your Inner Voice

Presented by Polly Burton, LPC and Nyssa Howell, LPC

Call it intuition, inner compass or inner voice, it’s the quiet tug deep inside telling us something is wrong. Anxiety, depression, or mania often impersonates our inner voice. Sometimes the words from family or friends wanting the best for us can drown it out too. Using art to find your inner voice can be both calming and powerful. Experience these first hand as you are led through various creative activities that put you in touch with your inner voice. No art experience necessary.

WHEN: Saturday, March 18, 10am-1pm

From the Depths of Grief and Loss

From the Depths of Grief and Loss

Presented by Nancie Potter, LMFT, JD

Brought back by popular demand

As humans we all experience loss but we don’t always recognize grief when it comes to us. Sometimes we don’t understand how losses have been mounting up for us until we start asking questions such as “I am so sad every day, is this normal? How will I know if it has turned into depression?” or “No one in my life has recently died, so why do I feel like I am grieving?” If you have asked yourself such questions, join us for insights, answers, and hope.

WHEN: Saturday, May 6, 10am-noon

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.
