Workshops

Periodically Sarah Leitschuh Counseling, PLLC offers workshops at the Eagan office location or elsewhere in the community.

People often wonder why I offer free or low cost workshops instead of just focusing on providing therapy.   The answer to this question is not simple.   There are multiple reasons I continue to offer workshops.   Here’s is my attempt to offer a partial explanation and convey to you the passion and energy that I bring to my workshops.

  1. I love connecting with and supporting other parents and professionals that are trying their best to support children and adolescents.  Workshops allow me to connect with a larger audience at once.
  2. Not every family will benefit from or need my counseling services, but we all benefit from learning skills to improve our ability to talk about and cope with emotions, developing strong relationship skills and prioritizing self care.   Workshops allow me to transfer the information and skills that I have acquired as a therapist into more of an educational format to be shared with those who may not need therapy at this time.

If you would like to receive announcements about opportunities to attend a workshop          presented by Sarah Leitschuh Counseling, PLLC please subscribe by providing your email address below.  These announcements are sent out 3-4 times per year.



Upcoming Workshops

Holiday Anxiety & Your Child

11/15/16  Burnsville, MN

I am honored that NAMI Minnesota has invited me to be the speaker for their November Parent Education night.   This presentation is free and open to the public.  Click here to register.

The holidays can be a difficult time for families raising children living with a mental illness-from all the hustle and bustle, to family gatherings, breaks in routines and school schedules.  This class will not only help parents gain tools to help manage their children’s anxiety, but also their own.

We will develop a basic understanding of the influence of social and emotional development, brain development and hormones and how this affects communication with the adolescents in our lives.  I will also share communication strategies that can be implemented immediately
