Writing on Loss:
Therapeutic Bereavement Group
This group is currently full and will run again later in 2020. To join the interest list for our next session, enter your email address below.
Thursday evenings, 6:45 to 8:00 pm
Deep loss never goes away. We feel it sharply and immensely some days and are numb on others. The healing from loss comes through the actual feeling of the loss. Without opportunities to deeply feel and grieve, these feelings can become lodged inside and suppressed. In these six sessions, group members are invited to access feelings of loss and grief in a safe and supportive setting. Feelings will be accessed through sharing work, discussion, and guided writing prompts, with an emphasis on grounding techniques. Members will be asked to continue at home on the writing they started in the group. Group is limited to four participants. Group members are highly recommended to also be in individual therapy.
Led by Lisa Coppola, LMHC
Includes one phone consultation, six 75-minute group sessions, and one 45-minute individual session after group concludes.
The Art of Anxiety & Self-Esteem
This group will run in summer 2020. To join the interest list, enter your email address below.
Tuesday evenings, 6:30 to 8:00 pm
Anxiety is one of our most basic and useful emotions when felt
effectively. However, when unmanaged and overactive, anxiety can negatively impact all aspects of our lives, including our sleep, our work, our social interactions, and perhaps most importantly, our self-esteem. This group utilizes a combination of the therapeutic creative arts and practical skills to help you both better understand and manage your anxiety, as well as help improve your self-esteem. Whether this is your first time seeking treatment for your anxiety or you have sought treatment before, this group will be able to benefit you and meet you where you are at.

Join this book club/support group to reflect on your relationship with yourself as a parent and your relationship with your kids. We will read Daniel Siegel and Mary Hartzell’s book Parenting from the Inside Out. Over the course of this 8-week group, we will apply the content of the book to our own lives in order to increase self-understanding, self-compassion, and connection with our children. We will explore multigenerational patterns, attachment theory, brain science, emotional regulation, and mindfulness. Appropriate for parents of kids of all ages. (Group is for adults only.)
