Support / Community / Wellness / Understanding / Growth
Group therapy provides the opportunity to explore patterns of relating to others and experiment with new ways of interacting. Many people learn new skills and perspectives through hearing the rich and experiential stories of others. Group members have novel insights or may be able to relate to you in ways that promote growth and understanding that you had not considered alone, or in individual therapy. Group sessions also provide feedback and support from peers in a safe, therapeutic space. Here, group therapy services are offered for specific topics as well as general wellness and support. Please inquire about what groups are being offered at this time or joining a waitlist for the group that best suits your goals...

Open Deeply: ENM/Polyamory/Open-Relationship Group
Are you in an open relationship? Are you looking to open a relationship? Do you want to explore non-monogamy?
This group explores the issues of navigating these challenges. Open relationships can bring more freedom, more love, more fulfillment, more adventure in your lives, yet it’s important to do this consciously and with skill that help manage issues like jealousy, values, boundaries and more.
D&D Group: Anxiety and Depression Focus
Have you ever noticed that D&D games can mend friendships and relationships?
So has M. A. Connell in her breakthrough book: Tabletop Role-Playing Therapy. Due to the prevalence of anxiety and depression, and how they more often co-occur together, I will be hosting a D&D game on Roll20 that addresses the facets and symptoms of these concerns. In regard to anxiety, this can span from making mistakes and observing what happens as a result, to social encounters and do-overs. In regard to depression, we can focus on working through symptoms related to decision making and not feeling like others want you around.
Hoping to begin this group in July 2023. Please reach out if you would like to join! Limited to 8 PCs.
