Stress Less for the Holidays Nov 13, 20, Dec 4, 11, 2019, 6-7:30 pm

Do the holidays fill you with anxiety and dread? Do family gatherings and office parties make you want to hide under the covers until January? Is everyone around you filled with holiday cheer, while you are filled with nothing but stress and eggnog?

Whether family drama, end-of-year deadlines, or holiday party social anxiety has you stressed, we’ve got you covered.

Join Stella Nova for a 4-week workshop series, “Stress Less for the Holidays” where Dr. Alexis Lopez will be your guide to keeping stress and anxiety at bay this holiday season.

We’ll be sharing practical tools for:
* Managing worry & anxiety
* Staying calm & grounded in difficult situations
* Setting healthy boundaries with family (or anyone!)
* Shifting from self-criticism to self-kindness when stress levels rise
* Creating your holiday season survival plan
And more!

This intimate, interactive workshop is limited to just 7 participants. $275 covers all four sessions + materials. Open to women and non-binary adults of all ages and backgrounds, who observe any holidays or no holidays at all. Payment plans are available – please inquire for more information.

Second Fridays @ Stella Nova: Cultivating Self-Compassion Nov 8, 2019, 12-1 pm

If you’re like many of our clients, you are smart, successful, and really, really hard on yourself. Self-criticism comes naturally to many of us, whether we learned it in our families or figured it out ourselves as a way to stay motivated and moving forward. But you’ve probably noticed that harsh self-criticism also has some unintended side-effects, like tanking your self-esteem or making it harder to take risks for fear of failure.

Here’s the good news: There’s another way. Cultivating self-compassion doesn’t only make us healthier and happier, it also helps motivate us to keep growing and improving where self-criticism fails. In this hour-long workshop, Dr. Alexis Lopez will help you figure out how to shift from a self-critical to a self-compassionate mindset so that you can thrive AND reach your goals. 

Second Fridays at Stella Nova. Every second Friday of the month, Stella Nova hosts a BYO lunch hour 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 November 8, 2019 at 12 pm. The 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!
