Group psychotherapy can be a very effective way to work on issues, overcome obstacles, and achieve personal growth. I currently run three psychotherapy and support groups for women.
Women's Trauma Group
I run two separate group for women who have experienced various types of trauma such as childhood abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence relationships, high family dysfunction, toxic relationships, family addiction issues, and family mental illness and suicide. Each group runs 60 minutes long. The focus of these groups are to allow each member to open up about her personal history and current struggles in a safe and protective environment that allows for interpersonal connection, healing, and the creation of community. It helps women deal with problems with self-image, assertiveness, asking for help, setting appropriate boundaries, trust, and identifying and managing toxic relationships. It teaches women to be better advocates for themselves
Senior Women's Support Group
This group is for senior citizen women who may be dealing with the following issues: isolation and loneliness, aging and health concerns, financial stresses, family discord, and finding meaning in retirement and/or after raising a family.
I accept the following insurances to cover group fees: Medicare, Husky, Anthem, and Yale Health Plan, I will work out a fee for those without insurance or an insurance plan that I do not take.
