Library seminar Aug. 1


A personal empowerment seminar is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 1, at 11 a.m. at the Fayette County Public Library.

“The session is aimed at adults who are tired of being tired, feeling overwhelmed by life, and looking for some help becoming more proactive and more self-sufficient,” according to organizers.

Admission is free.

Professional therapist Musanna Overr will introduce participants to some tools they can use to take control of how they feel each day. She will focus on five key areas: Finding Your Life’s Purpose; Health; Love & Relationships; Loss & Grief; and Dealing with Life’s Unexpected Realities. Overr plans to inspire and encourage every participant to go forth with greater zest to live life to the fullest, and to embrace their inner power to create change on a personal level.

Overr has worked to help others realize their potential since 1999, when she received her master of arts in psychology from Georgia School of Professional Psychology, and started working at Anchor Hospital as a needs assessment counselor for patients struggling with mental health or substance abuse problems. She followed that with 13 years as director of guidance at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School, where in addition to providing college guidance, facilitating student/parent teacher conferences, and allocating Title I funds, she also served as a family therapist whenever needed.

The Fayette County Public Library is behind the Fayette County administrative complex in downtown Fayetteville, at the southwest corner of Highways 85 and 54. For more information, contact the library at 770-461-8841.
