ANNOUNCEMENT: Two New Groups for Current Patients

We are pleased to announce two new groups that will be starting in the first week of October. The groups are open to current Baywell patients. If you are interested in signing up, please contact our front desk staff at office@baywellpsych.com or call 415-922-9122.

Emotional Coping Skills Group with Dr. Mariel Herbert starting on Tuesday, October 4th

We all struggle with intense feelings and caring for ourselves with compassion. Emotions, including anxiety, sadness, and anger, are overwhelming at times. We usually to try to deal with intense emotions with the coping skills we know well–whether these skills are healthy or not. This group will review foundational coping skills and strengthen individual psychological wellness plans. It can also supplement and support your other therapy work.

The group includes: Stress management, self care, distraction techniques, assessment of values and goals, mindfulness, use of senses and grounding skills, cognitive-behavioral and emotion regulation skills.

Note: Because this is a skills-based group, we will be reviewing and practicing together each week, and some reading and writing are required. Outside of group sessions, the average time to complete intersession work will be an average of 5-15 minutes per day.

Sleep and Insomnia Skills Group with Dr. Mariel Herbert starting on Wednesday, October 5th

Everyone deals with poor sleep and insomnia at some point in their lives. This group is open to anyone who would like to work on understanding and improving their sleep. Elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia are included, as are mindfulness and relaxation techniques.

Note: Because this is a skills-based group, we will be reviewing and practicing together each week, and some reading and writing are required. Outside of group sessions, the average time to complete intersession work will be an average of 5-15 minutes per day.

If you are interested in signing up for either group, please contact our front desk staff at office@baywellpsych.com or call 415-922-9122.
