“Tis the season to be jolly” –– perhaps but there are a lot of things that can get in the way. Between family gatherings, too much food, buying gifts, the dark, the cold weather, and the pressure to have a ‘wonderful’ time like everyone else seems to be having in TV ads and on Facebook  –– the holidays can be problematic.

Join speaker, Laurie Newkirk, as she shares strategies to move through the holiday season with less anxiety and more ease, plus ways to be good to yourself so you can hopefully enjoy this time of year.

Newkirk is the co-founder of the award-winning, internationally acclaimed website: The site focuses on healing the adult daughter/mother relationship. Newkirk has spent nearly 10 years studying the dynamics of intimate relationships including one’s relationship with oneself. She has appeared on radio and TV talk shows, taught workshops and received numerous awards for her writing.
