Workshops

Bullet Journal Your Way Through 2022

Learn the basics of therapeutic journaling as well as bullet journaling. Journaling can be used as a mood tracking mechanism, a coping method in the form of writing, or even a spot to draw for relaxation. We will further explore the specific techniques of bullet journaling which can assist with goal setting, processing of automatic negative thoughts, and help to identify formats that decrease feelings of being overwhelmed in daily life.

The class size will be small so group members will have the opportunity to interact with the therapist during class. Join Mandy Daniel, MSW, LISW to have the opportunity to begin creating an individualized therapeutic journal that you can take home!
