LIVE Podcast Thursday ~ “Returning to Socialization” @ *Virtual via Zoom
Apr 15 @ 5:00 pm – 6:15 pm

This past year was like no other.

Join us Thursday, April 15, 2021 at 5pm for a live podcast. Executive Director Loretta Depka will talk with The Starting Point practitioner Erik Jervis, MSW, LSW about the importance of socialization (for all ages) as society, slowly, gets back to some type of normalcy. Erik will explain why it’s important to socialize (especially for kids, teens and young adults in college,) the current anxiety that stems from COVID, and how to address it.

Erik works with children, adolescents, and adults who are seeking help with issues such as self-esteem, anxiety, sexuality, recovery from trauma, codependency, relationship issues and feeling stuck in life. He offers his services in individual and family sessions, implementing various therapeutic approaches catered to the client’s needs. He is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for his clients and is interested in working with vulnerable populations.

A replay will be available on The Starting Point’s YouTube channel within a few days after the live podcast. Click on the subscribe button and you will receive a notification any time something has been uploaded.
