Let’s build bridges – not walls.
Healing Support Group
Spark Center therapist Elisa Louizos, LCSW will be facilitating this group in collaboration with Affinity Counseling and Together We Heal.
First meeting is Thursday, January 9th.
Future dates: February 13th, March 12th, April 16th, May 14th, and June 11th.
Lupe Rodriguez, LCSW and Elisa Louizos, LCSW, will provide you with the most powerful tools to support your mental health and wellness: simple movement (e.g., walking, yoga, etc.), nature, and evidenced-based psychotherapy. Sidewalk Support can help you cope with stress and depression, improve your mood, reduce tension and anxiety, enhance brain plasticity, increase self-regulation, and heighten feelings of well-being. It also can strengthen the mind-body connection and increase your energy.
Sidewalk Support is likely to be the right fit if you…
- want therapy but feel intimidated by face-to-face sessions;
- tend to clear your mind or do your best brainstorming when you’re exercising;
- are efficiency-minded and want to get in “steps” along with some self-development.
Vision Board Workshop
Here’s how this creative process can help participants build a better life:
– Identify hopes and desires, then select images that represent them.
– Create a loud & clear visual message.
– Capture what’s meaningful in pictures and written words.
– Preparing for action mentally engages our bodies in that direction.
– Consistency is the key.
– Seeing a vision board everyday stimulates action.
– Train the mind, body, and spirit to fulfill dreams and goals!
Participants can prepare for the workshop by reflecting on values, relationships (or desire for one), health and wellness, career goals, leisure time, what they want to learn or how they want to grow.
ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED!

Retrain Your Brain
This workshop, led by life coach and behavior analyst, Marlene Rose, was developed to help you leave behind the thinking patterns that negatively affect your mood and behavior, interfere with positive outcomes in relationships, contribute to conflict and misunderstanding, undermine confidence, and dampen creativity and authenticity.
