The Group Therapy and Workshops that I offer provide a supportive and experiential approach to specific mental health goals. Group therapy is an ongoing weekly hour-long meeting that can serve as a stand-alone treatment, as an addition to individual therapy or as a transition from weekly individual therapy to the conclusion of therapy. Workshops are intensive goal-oriented weekend sessions 2-4 hours in length.
Upcoming Group and Workshop schedule:
The Power of You – Women’s Empowerment Group
Mondays 5:30 – 6:30 (or sometimes later depending on number of group members) – Monthly commitment required
Topics covered will include:
Assertiveness & Communication Skills
In many cases, communication problems are the result of lack of assertiveness skills. It can be difficult to know how assertive we are. In some situations, we may feel very capable of being assertive but in other situations, we notice that we are not really expressing how we feel or what we think. Later on, we may feel misunderstood, perhaps overcommitted, or feel upset and frustrated for not speaking up. Together, we will learn assertiveness techniques, with plenty of practice in the group setting.
Mindfulness & Meditation
We have all heard of the many physical and emotional benefits of mindfulness and meditation. However, setting aside time to learn and practice can be a challenge. Join us as we come together in a supportive learning environment to learn the techniques, discuss the difficulties and experience the benefits of mindfulness and reconnecting with our inner world.
CBT for Insomnia
According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, CBT-I can be an effective treatment for chronic insomnia. The skills learned in CBT-i teach the body to “reset” it’s sleep system. These skills are also shown to improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety.
