How do we find balance between work and family? Tired and Stressed? Is this the portrait of today’s modern family? Is the work/life balance at best an impossible ideal and at worst a complete myth? One of the challenges for working parents is finding the time to do it all! While parenthood, can be a source of great happiness, the stresses and strains of juggling it all can be significant. There is no one formula for attaining a balanced life. Achieving work/family balance is an ongoing process of managing many different moving parts.

Come join Patti Sayre, LCSW and School Psychologist as we discuss and share how to create more balance in your family/ work life.

PattiSayre is a Licensed Social Worker and Certified School Psychologist. She brings to her work a unique and special combination of knowledge, education and 30 years of professional experience.

This workshop will not last more than 90 minutes.
