Men's Support Group

Group Therapist: John Carr, LICSW
Time: Every other Tuesday 7:00pm to 8:30pm (New members will be accepted after October 2, 2018)

The purpose of the group is to give men (21-59) an opportunity to explore the messages they've received about what it means to be a (healthy) man. Men find this useful in helping them not feel as alone, while also helping them deepen their ability to perpetuate the positive messages and let go of the negative ones. All potential participants are required to have a meeting with John Carr to determine whether the group is a good fit. This is not a drop in group.

Mindfulness and Trauma: A Workshop for Women

  • Google Calendar ICS

Group Therapist: Julia Barry, LMFT
Time: March 3rd, 2018, 1pm - 4:30pm

For many people, mindfulness practice provides refuge from the daily experience of suffering, but for others who have experienced overwhelming life events, mindfulness practice can at times prove overwhelming. “Trauma” is not in the event itself but in how the nervous system responds to the event. Utilizing Somatic Experiencing® principles (mindfulness of body), we will work to develop skills to unwind these nervous system patterns and cultivate various ways to adapt mindfulness practices to better suit our needs. Individual and dyadic practices will be explored.
