The workshop was designed so you do not have to share what brought you into counseling or anything else you do not want to share.  We will have practice exercises and assignments between meetings to hone and practice specific skills that will help members understand their symptoms and to fight anxiety.  These skills are known to promote and increase wellness and healthy living.
