Support & Skills Coaching Groups: Overview
Are you feeling alone, afraid, or anxious?
Do you want to learn concrete skills about how to maintain clearer boundaries and stronger self-care habits?
Going through transitions that require decisions and non-judgemental guidance?
Would it help you to hear from others who may share similar experiences and struggles?
Are you wishing to develop a deeper emotional connection with yourself and others?
Do you want to be in a space that is socially conscious, feminist, LGBTQ+ inclusive, sex-positive, and anti-racist?
These groups are a safe place for those who hold a fundamental consciousness of how the layers of cultural and systematic oppression and trauma influence our personal and inter-personal health and wellbeing. I have designed and facilitated dozens of skills, support, and therapy groups since 1983.
The nurturing, validating, and safe nature of a therapy or support group is inspiring and life-changing.
Deep healing and personal growth ensue when a group of committed people joins together to compassionately listen, gently support, and vulnerably share their personal thoughts, feelings, challenges, and dreams with one another.
- The meetings may incorporate mini-lecture, coaching, goal-setting, video, topic discussion, skill-building, homework, and personal sharing.
- Handouts, homework, and bibliographies are provided.
- Rate: $50-60/session for 75-90 minute groups. Some sliding fee slots are available.
- All groups are for socially conscious adults who are anti-racist, poly-friendly, sex-positive, and LGBTQ+ affirming.
Differences between support and therapy groups
These Educational, Support & Skills coaching groups balance personal supportive sharing with an educational & skills-building component. They provide opportunities for like-minded humans going through similar issues to learn together, give and receive mutual support and validation, and share experiences, resources, and information.
Therapy groups are generally long-term and ongoing groups (meaning they meet every week and, depending on the goals, the clients may choose to stay for several months or more). Therapy groups, in addition to offering validation and support, also tend to more therapeutically and deeply explore individual members’ issues, thoughts, and feelings.
Free 20 to 30-minute phone or in-person intake appointments are required for all groups. Email to schedule.
I often have waiting lists for each group. If you are currently in individual or relationship counseling or coaching, I will ask that you sign a Release of Information Form so that I may connect with your provider.
