June 23, 2020

Mary O’Neill, licensed psychotherapist, leads one-hour session on resilience building

Santa Rosa, Calif. – On Thursday, June 11, Redwood Credit Union (RCU) hosted a free, 60-minute webcast titled “Self-Care and Stress Management: Tools and Best Practices for Coping with COVID-19 and Beyond.” Originally shared as one of the benefits RCU offers its Members, positive feedback spurred the organization to make the resource available community wide and it can now be viewed on RCU’s YouTube channel.

The webcast was presented by Mary O’Neill, a licensed psychotherapist and expert on helping people cope with stress. RCU’s President & CEO Brett Martinez acted as moderator.

During the webcast, O’Neill provided guidance on how to cultivate a healthy emotional state and manage stress. She shared tools, practices, and steps for remaining calm and steady in the face of any crisis.

“Years of disasters—fires, flood, and now coronavirus—have taken a toll on our mental and emotional health,” said Brett Martinez. “Mary has been a great partner in providing training and support for our employees over the years, so we thought we’d ask her to share her wisdom in this very accessible way.”
