Group dates through June 2017

The groups are facilitated by licensed therapists with over 6 years of experience running groups and helping people move through and heal from separation and divorce. The group members range from newly separated, separated from committed relationships and/or in the process of getting divorced, to after the divorce is final. Bring your questions and experiences. Share at the level you feel comfortable. This is a place where you are welcomed to listen and talk about what is happening in your life with people who can understand and really “get” what you are going through.

Within the group you will find understanding, support and encouragement through both your personal sharing, as well as through hearing the different stories, perspectives and experiences of others. In the group we talk, laugh and cry as we process, validate and normalize our experiences. Together we find new strengths, clarity and direction.

Some of the issues we talk about are:

The losses
“I feel like my whole life has been turned inside out and upside down”
The loss of your partner, your sense of family and the loss of “the dream”

The changes
Moving Towards What is New“I haven’t been single for so long, who am I?”
The changes in the structure of your daily life and in your identity
The changes in your home life and with family and friends

The challenges
“My ex is like a different person since we separated”
Making legal decisions while you are feeling lost, grieving or angry
Rediscovering who you are outside of your relationship
Creating healthy boundaries between you and your ex that fosters healing

The children
“How can I support my children through all these changes?”
Co-parenting your children
Suddenly becoming a single parent
Keeping your children from getting caught in the middle

Healing
“Will I ever feel good again? How long will it take?”
Finding your new normal
Finding new dreams for your future
The four letter word “date” and healthy relationships for your future

If you think it might be helpful to join with others who can understand what you are going through, where you are free to express how you feel and be accepted, call or email for more information and to join. Begin getting the support you want now. You don’t have to go through this alone.
