For many of us, the holiday season is a time for sharing peace, love, and happiness. However, in our increasingly connected and frantic world, the holidays have also become a great source of stress, a nebulous time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day during which our calendars are full, our routines are rocked, and our mental health is challenged. Stress during the holidays can be caused by trying to do too much and/or not dealing with this stress effectively.
Our Mindful Holidays Workshop, taught by Marisol Tobey, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, will offer simple mindfulness tools to help you avoid holiday-induced stress so you can truly enjoy this very special time of the year.
This program is presented by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
About Marisol Tobey
Marisol Tobey is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who obtained her master’s degree in Counselor Education from the University of Central Florida in 2007. She worked in the field of psychological trauma with clients ages 3 to 99 for almost a decade before moving to private practice.
Trained in various evidence-based modalities, she has a special talent for connecting with the client and “meeting them where they are” therapeutically, then matching that theory which best speaks to the client. Working in the field of trauma offers her a depth of knowledge of the workings of the human mind as well as the resiliency of the human spirit.
In addition to her clinical practice, Marisol has a passion for educating others through the development of webinars, trainings, local and national presentations, and curriculums for Child Advocacy Centers, community mental health agencies, graduate courses in mental health counseling, seminars on relationship education, positive psychology and the connection between mind, body and soul.
She has co-authored two scholarly articles on therapeutic triage decision-making and overcoming barriers in relationship education for Hispanic Couples. Marisol is also trained in the National Organization for Victim Assistance (NOVA) model of crisis response and worked with displaced children and adults from Haiti after the devastating 2010 earthquake.
