Understanding  Anxiety and Stress in a Post-Pandemic World

Stress and anxiety are part of everyone's lives. The pandemic has only made it worse. There are so many apps and programs aimed at helping us feel happy. This program has a different focus. It combines our Catholic faith and psychology and gives an integrated view of a whole person. It is not therapy, but provides some education on how the brain works and  gives some exercises that may provide you with more peace in the world. Presented in collaboration with the Alpha Omega Clinic.

Stay Tuned!

We hope to offer this program again in the future.
