Healing Waters Counseling Offers Free Stress Screening In February

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

During the month of February, Healing Waters Counseling, LLC, will be offering a free stress screening for adults at 4320 Ringgold Road, East Ridge, Tn. 37412.

Clinical Director Nancy R. Rose, JD, LCSW said, “Stress is a reaction to situations that impact our bodies and our minds. Negative stress causes feelings of anger, irritation, aggravation and impatience and takes a toll on our bodies with our hearts racing and tension. During February we are inviting adults who want to learn healthy ways to deal with stress to contact us and we will offer a screening that will show them the differences between “good” stress and the stress that is harmful to their health and well being. Gary R. Mauldin, Ph.D. and Bill Reynolds, LCSW, and I will all be available for these screenings.”

To schedule a brief screening session, call Lynn I. Wilkes, Director of Community Outreach, at 423 698-5090 for more information or email yourhealingwaters@att.net.
