Domestic abuse is severely misunderstood in our culture. This fact makes finding support difficult for survivors of this type of abuse. If you join this group, you will find a physically, mentally, and emotionally safe place to share your experiences and to process how your past abuse is affecting your current life. While talking about your emotions and experiences can be daunting, it is a very healing experience. To honor where you are in the healing process, you will never be required to share. I am passionate about providing a place where you feel and know that you are safe.

Moving Through Transition for Women

Women’s Issues

Mid-life for women is a time of change and flux: experiences vary, of course, but often the physical aging process and changes in family life, career, and marital status can influence a renewed drive for meaning, grief for the loss of youth, an enlivening sense of empowerment, a redefining of identity, and a recalibration of how to be. This process is challenging, sometimes painful, and yet is a transformational opportunity to set the waves in motion for the second half of life. The purpose of this women’s group is to share our experiences of the process, to normalize what feels strange, to celebrate insights, and learn from each other. We will explore the stages of transition, reactions to change, and identify values, all to support taking the steps ahead with intention. The group is limited to 8 women, and will meet weekly, for 8 weeks. The group starts on April 9th.
