Support Group Facilitation

Due to the COVID19 Pandemic all in-person support groups are suspended.  We will continue to serve you online through Zoom.

Shared experiences can help us support our healing, growth and recovery from difficult situations.  In fact, it's what we call a protective factor, that helps us to become resilient after difficult times.  Our facilitator, Jessica, leads support groups that embrace a holistic mindfulness, trauma informed, positive wellness, supportive approach that incorporates the following:

  • Mindfulness Practices

  • Contemplative Reflection

  • Psycho-education

  • Coping skills and strategies

  • Therapeutic and Expressive Art creation

  • Spiritual or secular foundations

MBTI Grief and Loss Groups

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.  This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.  Grief and Loss Groups, facilitated by our Certified Grief Counseling and Trauma Specialist will help you have a space to talk about what you are needing and be supported in a universal community of spirit.    Therapeutic Art activities are included as often it is easier to access the arts than figure out the right words to say what we want to.  Mindfulness practices are taught as well as coping skills.

Currently we offer a once a month group on Zoom called Expressing Grief Through the ArtsEmail us for more information.
