Join us for our first 2020 Discover Webinar. It's a new year and a new decade. Are you still feeling stuck in the same old patterns? What long time habits do you want to break in 2020? 

Maybe you lose time surfing the internet, find yourself mindlessly snacking at night, or notice you have a long list of excuses to avoid intimacy with a partner. Are you trying to get started on an exercise program and curtail your dependence on sweets? Perhaps spiraling thoughts keep you up at night and you often feel stressed out, overwhelmed or just plain tired. If so, you aren't alone.

In this interactive presentation via video technology, Washington D.C. area psychologists Dr. Robyn Pashby and Dr. Kelly Donahue will help you recognize the triggers leading to various negative cycles. You'll learn simple strategies supported by research to take action, get you unstuck and feeling better!
