Staying Sober One Holiday at a Time
The holidays are a time of joy, gratitude, and warmth. The holidays can also, however, be a source of great emotional strain and expectations. Staying sober through the holidays can be more difficult than we have imagined, but that does not mean that it is not doable. In fact, instead of “staying” sober, we can learn to truly thrive in our sobriety, no matter what our holiday plans may be. We can learn to “live like the lotus: at ease in the muddy waters,” and develop a deeper foundation of self that cannot be swayed by others. In this lecture, Hannah will explore the ways to thrive in sobriety and stay close to connection during whatever upcoming holiday experience you may have.

Hannah has worked at Ashley Addiction Treatment at both the inpatient and outpatient locations as a counselor, and just recently transitioned into full time private practice. Hannah wholeheartedly believes in deconstructing barriers to authenticity, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and the power of emotional narratives to cultivate catharsis. In her free time, Hannah creates YouTube videos educating the public on emotional wellness, as well as spends ample time with her dog, Lola.
