Introduction to Nurturing Nourishment

with Katrina Seidman, MS, RDN, LDN & Karen J. Helfrich, LCSW-C

In this one-day workshop, we explore eating and relationship with food from a holisitic nourishing perspective.

Holistic nourishing sees eating from a nutrition, mental wellness, and community perspective, rather than a rigid, rules-based, thin-at-all-costs paradigm.

Participants will

  • Understand weight science facts and dieting dangers
  • Learn how to implement the principles of intuitive eating for the invidual and family
  • Begin body image acceptance and healing

Dates: TBD 

Cost: $125

Confidence-Builders: Self-Compassion Class

with Karen J. Helfrich, LCSW-C

Confidence-Builders is a course on self-compassion for self-confidence.

Participants will meet twice a month to work deeply into cultivating self-confidence through self-compassion.

Working through the Self-Compassion Workbook by Kristen Neff, PhD and Christopher Germer, PhD, we will

  • Deepen our understanding of the science supporting self-compassion as a primary healing tool
  • Cultivate a strong practice of self-compassion in a variety of situations and relationships
  • Grow in compassion for self and others through the shared journey of the group
  • Transform from self-criticism as a primary coping strategy, to self-kindness and loving accountability
