About the Event

A Therapeutic Discussion About Managing Stress & Family During The Holidays

The holidays are a special time to spend with friends and family. However, it can also be a very stressful time due to the expectations and demands from those around you. On top of that, handling Asian families comes with it’s own set of cultural challenges. 

In light of these times, Rock The Boat is partnering with Rivia medical ( to host an inaugural monthly Therapeutic Discussion. This session will focus on how to maintain healthy boundaries with family members, how to manage your own stress around this time of the year,  communication, and anything else that comes up during our discussion.

The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Dana Wang, a Harvard trained psychiatrist featured on our podcast, Rock the Boat. 

*Space is extremely limited to 7-10 people. This is a 90 minute session. We ask you to attend with open minds and open hearts. Everytthing discussed in this session is confidential.
