Support Groups

Support Groups: Connecting with a community

Most of our groups are free, open to the public, and facilitated by our staff and interns. Support groups are not therapy or process groups, but a place to connect with and learn from others going through similar experiences. 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.

Our current support groups cover the following topics:

Anxiety Support Circle: Collective support amid uncertain times

Beyond Abuse: A group for adults who have survived childhood sexual abuse or trauma

Life After Loss: Grief and bereavement support group for teens who have experienced the loss of a loved one to suicide

Fertility Support Circle: A peer support group for couples and individuals facing infertility

Anxiety Support Circle: Collective support amid uncertain times

This online group offers collective support amid our current experience of COVID-19. This group holds space for all the thoughts, feelings, or experiences that may be growing too heavy for each of us to carry as individuals. Anxiety Support Circles will be in HIPAA-compliant Zoom rooms with up to 15 other individuals seeking care and community in processing the anxiety that comes along with our uncertain world.

This group offers two weekly options: Wednesdays, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. OR Thursdays, 5:30-7 p.m.

Cost: “Pay what you can” via GoFundMe (suggested donation $5-$15)
