2020 VISION: ACCESSING OUR HIDDEN RESOURCES

How to Help Your Clients Reduce Stress & Clarify Goals in The New Year

beth leib, lmft

Our clients - and many of us therapists - may be entering this new year and new decade feeling stressed or exhausted from the holidays and anxious about the year ahead. Between the normal stress of starting a new year and the stressors built into 2020 with elections, climate change, and other uncertainties, our clients may be seeking guidance and techniques to decrease their anxiety, and increase their passion and a sense of purpose.


Through a combination of experiential, interactive and didactic techniques, this workshop is designed to aid clinicians in helping our clients slow down, more fully inhabit their bodies, reduce stress, and create a personal vision. This workshop will help therapists guide clients to connect with their true selves and deeper sense of purpose. In so doing, clients will be better able to set goals and create a plan to achieve those goals. By participating in this workshop, clinicians will also have the opportunity to create a professional and personal vision for themselves, an experience which will add to their clinical expertise in helping their clients to do the same.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn meditative techniques and new perspectives to help differentiate between attitudes and thought patterns that increase stress vs. decrease stress, and generate new possibilities.
  • Learn behavioral, cognitive, somatic and experiential approaches to help clients move beyond stuck-points, old identifications and barriers to achieving their goals.
  • Learn approaches that can help both clinicians and clients cultivate mindful awareness clarity and authenticity in setting intentions and goals, and manifesting them.


Beth Leib, LMFT (MFT #53494) is a therapist and group facilitator. Her 20 years of training and work experience is a synthesis of Western psychology, Eastern psychology and philosophy, somatic therapy, energy medicine and expressive arts.


Beth's multi-dimensional approach is influenced by her 13 years of training with John Welwood, Ph.D. Her areas of specialization are women's issues, child therapy, life transitions, grief and loss, depression and spiritual issues. Her work with children, ages 3 to 12, involves a variety of modalities including sandplay, expressive arts and play therapy. Beth has worked in community agencies and schools in Santa Clara County, San Francisco and Marin County before opening her private practice in Kentfield. She is passionate about helping her clients experience and transform their emotional distress and difficult issues into opportunities for healing, reconnection and integration. Her clients learn to inhabit themselves and life in new, more meaningful and fulfilling ways. Beth is starting a women's support group, Conscious Hearts, in February in her Kentfield office on Tuesday evenings.
