Family, Amiright? How to Set and Hold Holiday Boundaries with Family.

As if life wasn't stressful enough, here comes the holiday season - and all the family interactions that come with it. This time of year can be extra challenging for families, when there are lots of expectations, emotions, memories, and opinions swirling around. To visit, or not to visit? How should you manage your time? How can you get through it all and still wrangle some joy out of the season? By setting and holding solid, healthy, boundaries. In this session, we'll talk about the power and importance of stating your needs and advocating for yourself and your family.
