The Center offers the following support groups:
Thriving after Trauma
This group is focused on creating a sense of safety, understanding, and growth following a history of single-incident trauma, complex trauma, or any overwhelming stressful life experience that has led to unhealthy coping patterns.
This is an on-going, open group designed to enhance overall well-being and resilience, embrace an understanding of our capacity for change, learn how our brains work to create symptoms, and thereby offer an understanding of how healing and growth can occur. A focus will be to encourage the ability to use social supports and create authentic connections between group members.
This group, led by Dr. Diana Saunders, is held Monday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm.
Caregiver Support Group
Those caring for an ill or disabled loved one face unique challenges and stresses.
It is critical, but often difficult, to prioritize caring for yourself while also taking care of your loved one. For most people, a chronic illness impacts all aspects of yours and your loved ones’ lives, physically, emotionally, and in relationships.
There is comfort in knowing you are not alone on the journey. This group is designed to help you connect with others in similar situations and share information and experiences. Participants will have the opportunity to connect with other caregivers while discussing common themes, receiving support, and gaining practical coping and problem-solving skills to better navigate the realities of daily living.
This group, led by Dr. Rachel Novosel, is held Tuesday evenings from 6:45-8:00pm.
Infertility Support Group
Are you having difficulty trying to conceive? Feeling nervous? Alone? Scared to be hopeful? Join other women struggling with infertility for extra support, understanding, and encouragement as you navigate this often difficult path.
This group, led by Dr. Shoshana Wortman, is held Thursday evenings from 7:15pm-8:30pm.
Do you struggle with expressing your genuine feelings? Join other men whose relationships and life goals have been affected by this common masculine conflict. Through the power of group therapy you will learn how to more honestly connect to yourself and easily share your authenticity. It is also a group aimed to help those who have difficulty socializing with other men.
This is a group for men aged 25 and older who struggle with connecting to and expressing their true emotional selves. The goal of the group is for the members to more easily identify their feelings without automatically needing to suppress them leading to more meaningful relationships and the ability to achieve important life goals. The group format will help to foster more of a sense of safety and connection for the members.
This group, led by Dr. Benjamin Lief, is held Thursday evenings from 6:45-8:00pm.
