Support Groups: Connecting with a community
Most of our groups are free support groups facilitated by our staff and interns and open to the public.
Support groups are not therapy or process groups, but a place to connect with others going through
similar experiences and a time to learn from each other. There is not a formal registration for support
groups, but we do ask that prior to attending for the first time you send us an email with our contact
form so we know to expect you. Therapy groups require a commitment to attending a certain number of
sessions and may be billed through insurance.
- Fertility Support Group: Coping with infertility and fertility-related issues can be a very isolating experience for both men and women. Well-intentioned family and friends try to be supportive, but unless they’ve gone through the
experience themselves, there is no way for them to truly understand the feelings of stress, anxiety and
grief. And when a couple is unable to express those feelings, it can create tension within the relationship
and confusion about what to do next. Open to men and women, this ongoing support group gives
couples and individuals a place to connect and share or simply listen.

- Pregnancy & Postpartum Support Group: This is a bi-monthly support group that is held and in a safe and comfortable environment. This group is facilitated by a mental health therapist, with a specialization in pregnancy and post partum care. It is an opportunity for parents (and soon to be parents) to find support, fresh ideas and validation from other parents in similar situations. This group gives couples and individuals a place to connect, share or listen.
- Grief and Loss Support Group: If you or someone close to you is experiencing loss of a loved one, a divorce, loss of a job, or unresolved grief throughout the years, then “ A Grief & Loss Journey” is a necessary group to attend. This group will offer a safe and nurturing environment to share and tell the stories. An environment where it’s okay to show your grief and cry your tears. Be transparent with others willing to open their hearts and transform pain.
