Surviving "Not My Child Syndrome"

Founder of Mallory's Army - Dianne Grossman will share her personal story on November 16th at 6pm at St. Mary's Carnivale Center, 10 Lenox Ave., Pompton Lakes, NJ.

Get to Goal in 2018

January 11, 2018  Two options 12noon or 7pm!

Are you stressed out from the holidays and looking to reset for the new year? Have you had trouble keeping past New Year Resolutions? Join me for a one hour workshop on how to get past the clutter and reach your personal goals in this new year! Day and evening option available on January 11th. Come at 12 noon or at 7pm. Both workshops will be held at 10 Fairmount Avenue and have limited space, so sign up soon. This workshop teaches goal setting strategies that can help increase likelihood of goal achievement. Participants will learn key elements of positive psychology and how those elements can be applied to goal setting. We will review setting smarter, more realistic and appropriate goals, while still allowing you to stretch and achieve the changes you are seeking while preparing for obstacles that could get in the way. Cost of the class is $30 per person. Email to register.
