ANNOUNCEMENT: New Groups led by Dr. Mariel Herbert

We are pleased to announce several new groups will be starting in February. These groups are open to current Baywell patients and the community. If you are interested in signing up, please contact our front desk at [email protected] or call 415-922-9122.

  1. Metacognitive Therapy Group – Tuesdays, 5PM – led by Dr. Mariel Herbert
    Dates: 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 2/28, 3/7, 3/14, 3/21
    About: The way we feel and react to situations, including our thoughts, can cause and worsen depression. We usually go through our lives either unaware of the connections between our thoughts and feelings—or overly aware in a negative or anxious way. The Metacognitive Therapy Group is for those who would like to understand and change their cycles of negative thoughts and feelings. This collaborative group training will be completed over eight structured sessions with some individual work between group sessions.

    Technical requirements: Adobe Acrobat Reader. Participants will need to be able to view the material/pdfs on their computers during each group session.

    Dates: 2/1, 2/8, 2/15, 2/22, 3/1, 3/8, 3/15, 3/22
    About: Compassion training develops a sense of calm, stability, and well-being by focusing on empathy and consideration of self and others. This group will be educational and practical. We will work on mindfulness, managing emotions, self-criticism, and acceptance.

    3. Sleep Well Group – Wednesdays, 5PM – led by Dr. Mariel Herbert
    Dates: 2/1, 2/8, 2/15, 2/22, 3/1, 3/8, 3/15, 3/22
