This workshop will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 15 from 7 – 8:30 p.m.

“Happiness and the Holidays: How to Find Peace” — Certified Professional Life Coach Sharon Roth-Lichtenfeld knows that while the holidays are a time of family, joy and happiness for many, for those who have suffered a major loss or life transition, this time of year can bring up pain, sadness and struggle.

Join her to learn strategies to take the “happy” out of the holidays and create peace instead. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 15 from 7 – 9 p.m. This workshop is sponsored by United Way of Gloucester County.
