Have You Recently Moved to NYC? 
By Taylor Ashe, MHC-LP

GROUP DESCRIPTION
Regardless of the circumstances, relocating to a new city can be an emotional experience. Many people experience conflicting emotions such as excitement, fear, hopefulness, awe, and loneliness.

Regular visits with friends quickly become phone calls, and your daily routine is disrupted as you search for a new favorite coffee spot. These changes can lead to social anxiety, heightened self-criticism, and isolation from others.

With the right skills and opportunity for open discussion with others, though, it is possible to manage the painful emotions and build meaningful connections. In this group, you will foster new awareness and curiosity, and you will practice skills to manage difficult feelings like loneliness and anxiety, all among people who “get it.”

Unwind
Led By Amy Vigliotti, Ph.D

Our meditation groups teach skills to reduce stress and promote relaxation in body and mind. No prior experience with meditation is required. This group will show you how to be mindful – essentially being present without judgment or criticism. Exercises are adapted from Dr. Amy Vigliotti’s CD, Unwind: Guided Relaxation. Benefits of a regular meditation practice include:

  • Improved physical and emotional health
  • Enhanced ability to focus and concentrate
  • A more accepting, less critical self
  • Stronger commitment to work; less burnout
  • Resiliency after setbacks
  • Compassion for ourselves and others
  • Effective decision-making
  • Remaining mindful of the present, without excessive concern about the past or future
  • Confidence and courage, even in anxiety-producing situations like interviews, performances, public speaking
