These Support, Coaching & Skills Groups include discussion, goal-setting, mini-lecture, handouts, worksheets, resources, and homework. They provide opportunities for members to talk about their concerns and successes related to the topic. Over the past 29+ years, I have facilitated and created dozens of support, psycho-educational and therapy groups. All of the groups that I offer are framed in a progressive social consciousness, are anti-racist, sex positive, and LGBTQAI2S-welcoming
