3 New Therapy Groups Forming

Happy Late Winter and Early Spring…very early spring!

I am currently forming 3 groups in my practice.

Feel free to call or email me for detailed literature on each.

 

 

Group 1– 18 week Brief Trauma group for adults who grew up in an alcoholic household. ACOA influenced. I currently have 4 spots open out of 8. (First installment)

group-therapy

This short-term 18 week trauma model address interpersonal intimacy, self stabilization from triggers, education on trauma and dysfunctional family systems, and core beliefs. The group is ideal for those who are struggling with relationships, depression/anxiety, and negative outlook. Primary focus is on the family system of origin. Trauma work within a community of equals is extremely nourishing and lasting. This model is based upon the work of Amanda Curtin LICSW of the Center for Change in Cambridge MA. 

 

 

Group 2 – 18 week Brief Trauma group for adults – non alcoholic parent qualifier. Same format as group 1 without ACOA influence. 5 out of 8 spots open. (5th installment)

 The work addresses interpersonal intimacy, stabilization from triggers, education on trauma and dysfunctional family systems, core beliefs and the genogram experiential. The group is ideal for those who are struggling with relationships, depression/anxiety, and negative outlook. Primary focus is on the alcoholic family system of origin. Trauma work within a community of equals is extremely nourishing and lasting. This is not a general support group but rather a specific program for significant change for those who feel stuck. This model is based upon the work of Amanda Curtin LICSW of the Center for Change in Cambridge MA. 

 

 

 Group 3 – Men in Relationships Group- opened ended group aimed at addressing stuck places in relationships for men.  Open to all adult men.
