Ongoing Groups

ON HIATUS – All-Gender Process and Support Group: Finding your place and the gender spectrum can be complex, confusing, joyful, overwhelming and spectacular. Building your Self and Home on your spot on the spectrum can offer a kind of deepening of self that is like nothing else. Whether you are questioning, building or remodeling your relationship to gender all are welcome here. Group meets every other Monday from 6:30-8 PM. Contact AndreAs Neumann-Mascis for more information.

Women of Color Group: The Women of Color support group is for women of color who are at least 23 years of age and older. This is a bi-weekly group that will meet for 8 weeks. It is limited to 10 women. This group is inclusive of women who are LGBTQ, as well as women who are heterosexual. This is an ideal group for women who are interested in developing skills or strengthening existing skills to manage anxiety, depression, relationships, and their professional identity.

Groups are particularly powerful forms of therapy because individuals are presented with an opportunity to share their strengths and struggles in a confidential setting that is designed to reinforce the value of relationships through both professional and peer. For more information, contact Luz Lopez or Dawn Belkin Martinez

Bereavement Support Group: “Grief is a Form of Love” -Katherine Shear PhD

If you have had someone significant to you die in the last year and have been wanting a safe, confidential space to talk about it, consider joining this group. During this 8 week group, we will name the common experiences of grief and loss. We will also allow each person their unique experience of their love and the relationship that has been altered by that loss. The group will include some mindfulness, guided imagery, writing exercises and discussion. This group is open and affirming- Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Straight.This is a general loss group, may it be your parent, partner, spouse, sibling. (This particular group is not recommended for someone who has lost a child. If you wish to have a referral for the loss of a child, please contact Wren).

Space is limited.

Registration and a meeting with the facilitator are required prior to joining the group.
