How much do the groups cost?
Groups are low-cost to everyone. There is an initial $10 charge for the booklet used in group. Each group costs $15, making a total of $90 for the 6-week group.
How long does each group session last?
Each group will be run for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Try and get there 10 minutes before your group actually starts so you can grab some coffee or get settled before group begins.
What can I expect the first night of group?
As you come in everyone will fill out a name tag. Your group leader will be wearing one as well. Everyone will be seated and your group leader will begin the group intake. Try and download and fillout your paperwork ahead of time, otherwise paperwork will be available.
Who are the group leaders?
Each group leader is a licensed counseling professional. Eventually we would like to create some opportunities for counseling interns as well.
How were the topics for groups selected?
Dealing with Depression is reflective of the fact 1 in 10 women suffer from depression.
All About Anxiety was selected as 3% of the population suffers from anxiety and women are twice as likely to experience it.
Honoring Your Inner Voice reflects the important need for women to have empowered voices.
Dream, Dare, Do It is for anyone who needs to create a new dream for her life whether that change is spurred on by midlife challenges, divorce, empty nest, and so on.
As time goes on and funding increases, more groups like self-care for women, PTSD, and others will be offered. The long-term goal is to also offer additional services like yoga and meditation and other wellness modalities that enhance the lives of women.
