Workshops for Individuals and groups
“I provide informative and interactive workshops for individuals dealing with a variety of life stressors, including a parenting series appropriate for parents as well as teachers and childcare workers. These workshops are designed to support and provide tools that can be used as soon as you get home” ~ Ashley Errico, MA, LPC, NCC
Worried Woman: How to address anxiety through art and meditation

It’s Not All aBout yoU: How to Navigate Narcissistic relationships
Participants will learn to identify a narcissist and navigate the relationships with the varying narcissists in their lives. Participants will also be introduced to the many types of narcissists and the behaviors and traits demonstrated by each. The goal of this workshop is for attendees to walk away with the knowledge of how to separate from or maintain a relationship with a narcissist without sacrificing the self. This workshop is particularly helpful for those who feel they may be the adult child of a narcissistic parent, but is applicable to all narcissistic relationships.
Healthy communication is a foundational building block in all relationships. This workshop will help guide participants toward effective and healthy communication through the use of compassion. When utilized in the workplace compassionate communication can increase sales, improve networking, foster connection, and increase productivity by improving the quality of relationships with co-workers and clients. Within personal relationships, compassionate communication can help encourage mutual understanding, find growth in conflict, allow both individuals to feel heard and valued, and support longevity of the relationship. Through the presentation of communication techniques, discussion and group exercises, the participants will leave this workshop with a better understanding of how to develop strong relationships through compassionate communication.
