DBT Intensive Workshops

Join Angela and Paige for these workshop intensives focused on introducing tangible skills that address a wide variety of concerns.

The workshop will be hybrid and will have in-person and online options available.

Each workshop is $25 or if you register for all 3 the cost would be $60. Scholarships and Pay What You Can options are available upon request.

ADHD & Nutrition Workshop

Saturday, June 25 from 10 am-12 pm.

Co-facilitated by Jean Tidd, ADHD-CCSP from Holistic Consultation, and Erica Drewry, RD from Aligned Nutrition

Cost: 35.00 per person

Eating is one of the most routine things we do yet healthy eating and weight regulation remain a challenge for people with ADHD. Poor executive functioning skills and poor emotional regulation lead to problems with organizing, planning, time management, impulsivity, and mindfulness about feeling hungry or full.

If you’d like to learn more, come join us as we explore the connection between ADHD and eating while also sharing some tips, tricks, hacks, and workarounds that may empower you to build your own functional food environment.

While ADHD and eating disorders can frequently be co-occurring, this skill-based workshop could be a useful complement for those in recovery but will not replace a treatment team. Reach out if you have any questions or would like to see if it is a good fit for you.
