We have a group geared for Women (18+). At the cross-section of body and culture this group is an exploration of pivotal moments that have created anxiety and depressive moments in our daily life. We will be looking at shifts and changes throughout the life cycle. Topics will cover body image, protective behaviors, physical objectification paradigms and assist with self-cohesion while making sure nourishment is consistent. This is an experience with interactive conversations that help build better connections and a more grounded stance as one continues on their journey of recovery.
GUYS GROUP: For adolescent males who struggle with being in a world that emphasizes perfection. We are in the process of gathering interest and again, please let us know your interest. We will meet weekly to assist in finding new attitudes surrounding being a guy in today’s society. We will explore social anxiety, perfectionism, masculinity scripts and how to find words when there seems to be a struggle to connect. Participants additionally will learn skills associated with mindfulness, eating disorder stabilization, emotion regulation, over-control, stress tolerance and effective communication.
Why participate in a [support] group?
If you are a person who often says, “no one gets me,” or “I don’t think anyone is ever going to understand what i’m going through,” or even “I am the only person who struggles like this,” Group therapy can take that perception away.
This is an opportunity to find something and discuss change as others are going through the process. Where else can you sit in a room of conscientious peers without phones and work on a problem together? So many people feel isolated every day, being a part of a group creates validity – something people seek. The process enables you to understand that you’re not the only person.
Why Group Therapy?
If you are a person who doesn’t want to feel isolated and alone and work towards a meaningful way to work on concerns around food and mind, this is for you. Our group will keep you supported and on track. You won’t feel bogged down every week. We aim to learn without feeling pressured.
The group dynamic is always welcoming and open.
Do you offer any other support groups?
We are beginning to consider running a
