Rising Strong™ for Ambitious Women, Tuesdays 6:45-8:15 pm

We all fall. The important thing is learning how to get back up again. The Rising Strong program, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, is all about learning to rise stronger when we experience failures, setbacks, and challenges in our life.

As professional women, it difficult to embrace the vulnerability that comes along with taking risks and living authentically at home and in the workplace. This 8-week workshop series provides a safe place to explore these topics and gain practical tools for building resilience in our lives. 

Facilitated by Maya Borgueta, PsyD, CDFW. Our eight week session running March 5 – April 30 is $445, inclusive of materials. Open to women and nonbinary individuals. Space is limited to six spots, so email to reserve your space ASAP!

International Women’s Day at Stella Nova: Self-Care for Balance March 8, 12-1 pm

You’re invited to join Stella Nova for a special, free mini-workshop in celebration of International Women’s Day 2019! This year’s IWD theme is “Balance for Better,” and so we’ll be talking about sustainable self-care.

Self-care is often treated as a luxury, but the pampering aspects of self-care – like bubble baths and face masks – are really just the cherry on top. Self-care is a mindset shift that more often than not involves the mundane parts of our day-to-day.

We’ll be taking a self-care self-assessment, talking about what gets in the way of self-care in our daily lives, and coming up with a plan for leveling up our approach to self-care.

Smoothies will be provided as a special IWD treat!

Second Fridays at Stella Nova. Every second Friday of the month, Stella Nova hosts a brown bag lunch for women and non-binary professionals on a variety of topics. It’s an informal chance for quick, interesting small group workshop or discussion with a Stella Nova therapist. And it’s always 100% free.

Our next event is March 8, 2019 at 12 pm. Our event is free, but tickets are required so that we can maintain an intimate, small group discussion. Bring your lunch or snack and come chat with us!

What Every Coach Should Know About Mental Health, March 30, 10:30 am – 4:30 pm

One in five American adults will experience mental illness this year.

As a coach, it’s inevitable that a significant number of your clients will struggle with common mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, substance use, and other issues. (Yes, that includes your high-functioning overachievers too!) These problems can impact how your clients will approach their work with you, and can also create challenges or barriers to their success if not addressed.

Although coaches are not mental health providers, their supportive relationships with clients means that mental health will come up, directly or indirectly. This workshop will introduce you to the basics of what every coach needs to know about mental health. You’ll leave feeling more confident about recognizing when a mental health issue might be present, and communicating about it in a stigma- and shame-free way within the bounds of the coaching role.

Facilitated by Maya Borgueta, PsyD and presented by Megan Murk Coaching, an ICHWC certified continuing education provider. $200-285
