Groups are a powerful place to do personal growth work as well as build skills and confidence in navigating relationships.
Reaching out for a free initial phone consultation is the first step in seeing if group is right for you.
Who can benefit from groups?
People who have benefited from group report:
As a group member you will have a chance to find healing in a diverse, safe-enough, and supportive community. Group therapy can be a uniquely powerful vehicle for working through interpersonal issues and deepening your sense of connectedness. Groups function as a microcosm of the real world, and give us an opportunity to try out authentic interaction with a wide range of people and receive valuable feedback in a supportive environment. Hearing from others who have dealt with similar issues can help us understand our own predicaments; and having an opportunity to tell our own stories can empower us to find our voice. Groups can be a transformative addition to individual therapy or an effective stand-alone treatment.
What happens in Group Therapy?
During a Group Therapy session, members work to express their thoughts and feelings as freely and honestly as possible. This allows members the chance to understand others at a deeper level as well as learn more about themselves by studying how they interact in the group.
Contact me to inquire about current openings. In an initial consultation, we will discuss if group is right for you and if so, which of my groups might be the right personality or demographic fit for your therapeutic needs.
I currently offer both online and in-person groups with appropriate COVID precautions.
I currently offer a:
- Majority BIPOC group- the membership of this group will always be majority self-identifying BIPOC individuals

Please let me know if you are particularly interested in one of these groups and/or an online or virtual group I can let you know about current openings.
Mixed Genders Process Groups- Authentic Connections
These groups are diverse, confidential, inclusive and affirming places for people of all genders, sexual orientations, races, cultures, faiths, sizes, and lifestyles and utilize a social justice lens. Group membership can be a generative addition to individual therapy and many members are in both.
