Mom's Therapeutic Group

Meets virtually on the Thursdays at 1pm | Led by Kristen Norris, LCPC

Motherhood can be overwhelming, exhausting and isolating. Add to that the additional stressors over this past year, and it can be a recipe for tremendous stress and anxiety. This group is designed to give moms a safe space to feel supported and understood in their feelings without judgement. We hope to be able to connect moms through various stages of motherhood, whether you’re home with a new baby or have a child going off to school for the 1st (or 5th) time. The goal of this group is to explore topics in motherhood that are not always discussed, to offer participants emotional support and to give them the tools necessary to lead a fulfilling and present life with their families.

 

Topics will include:

- Body Image

- COVID-related stressors

- The evolution of marriage and relationships with your partner    throughout motherhood

- Setting boundaries and self-care

- The “shoulds” of mothering and the impact of social media

- Identity after kids: work-life, interpersonal relationships, etc.

Holiday Support Group

Group meets virtually Thursdays at 1pm | Led by Lisa Butler, LCPC

Many of us struggle with managing family “drama” and stress during the holidays. Oftentimes these stressors are caused by unhealthy relationship boundaries. If you don’t have friends talking about their own family issues, you may think you are alone in these struggles.  But you are not!  This group will offer a safe space to get helpful information and talk with others who are trying to manage difficult family dynamics around the holidays.

 

Topics will include:

Week 1: Identifiying boundaries and recognizing signs of unhealthy boundaries.

Group Discussion: What do your family's boundaries look like and identifying the stressful dynamics at the holidays. 

 

Week 2: How to set healthy boundaries around holiday celebrations.

Group Discussion: Have you tried setting healthy boundaries in the past? If so, what was your experience with that? 

 

Week 3: Tools to use the day of/in the moment. 

Group Discussion: What is your game plan?

 

If group members are interested a 4th group can be scheduled after the New Year to “debrief” the holidays.
