Finding your voice and prioritizing your needs

Each week introduces a new theme, from goal setting and self-identity exploration to developing resilience and creating a personal empowerment plan. Participants will engage in reflective exercises, learn cognitive-behavioral techniques to challenge limiting beliefs, and explore self-care practices, all within a supportive environment aimed at fostering personal growth and empowerment.

Common Questions

Support groups are made up of people who share common challenges. These groups are focused on providing education, resources and tools, with the overall goal of helping you to cope. They provide a safe place for you to express your thoughts and feelings, and to share your experiences if you feel comfortable. Groups often provide reassurance and encouragement. There’s something truly unique about surrounding yourself with others who are experiencing similar challenges as you. Group members often walk away feeling stronger, more capable and hopeful about managing the difficulties that brought them to the group.

Our groups typically range anywhere from 5 to 12 people. 

Everyone is welcome! You do not need to be a current client in order to join any of the groups we offer. 

Confidentiality is of the utmost importance and is part of the ground rules for attending a group program. Everything said before, during and after group sessions is considered confidential and all members are required to sign and agree to this. 

All of our group programs occur on a private and confidential video conferencing service that has an encrypted connection and is both PHIPA (Personal Health Information Protection Act) and HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) compliant. You will receive a link by e-mail to access the sessions.

Every group member is expected to attend the full 8-week program, but we do understand that unforeseen events can occur. If you are going to be absent for any session, we ask that you please inform the facilitator(s).
