The stress and anxiety caused by the pandemic has been challenging for everyone, including municipal leaders. It’s been difficult to meet the expectations of elected officials, staff, community members, family, and friends.

Join your colleagues and award-winning counselor, business leader, and licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Joyce Marter to learn practical tools and strategies to promote the coping skills, mental wellness, and resilience needed during challenging times.

Joyce infuses each presentation with a sense of humor and a positive attitude. This approach, combined with more than two decades of experience in the field of psychotherapy, has helped drive Joyce’s reputation as a talented and sought-after speaker.
Joyce’s new book, The Financial Mindset Fix, was written to help cultivate mental and spiritual discipline for taking charge of your financial well-being. Books will be available for purchase at the luncheon for those that are interested.

This session will be educational for all senior leaders in your organization. Bring your assistant or department heads!
