Being an administrator can be exhausting.  It can be hard to remember to take care of yourself or to build professional and social resources to have a life that has balance.  You may be seeking a place where you can have some self-efficacy for teaching or administrating, and a feeling that you can have some competencies in living your life.  Are feeling overwhelmed?   Are you looking to try to get a grip on your life?   Are looking to develop a fuller life that incorporates professional and personal goals?  Dialectical Behavior Therapy could be right for you.
