 Drop-in Support Groups

If you are new to SASS groups, our drop-in groups are a great place to start! Come have conversations, discuss group topics, and find support from others who have had similar experiences. Due to the nature of the conversations that often happen during group, no late arrivals permitted. Our door locks about 5 minutes after group start time.

Closed Work-groups

Closed groups are more structured and have a specific focus. Registration is required, as well as a commitment to attend. Please speak with Rebecca, our SASS counselor, for more information, to help ensure the fit is right, and to reserve your spot. Contact info below.  New work-groups happen about 3 times per year with the next set beginning May of 2018.

Here is a sample of what we will be offering next. Subject to change based on needs from the community.

Women’s Journaling Workgroup – generally meets for 10 weeks during the day, (day & time TBD).

The simple act of expressing your thoughts and feelings about emotionally challenging experiences on paper can be very healing. Come join us and explore this avenue of therapeutic self-discovery. Receive a FREE journal and connect with other survivors in this thought provoking and internal discovery process.

Limited spots available. Consider getting on the group sign up list now to ensure your spot is reserved.

Women’s Internal Family Systems Parts Work – generally meets for 10 weeks on Tuesday evenings. 

Gain a greater understanding of yourself and your “parts” with the help of Internal Family Systems Parts Work, have more effective and fulfilling relationships using Emotional Intelligence skills, and learn to be present and still with the use of Mindfulness exercises. Included in this will also be psycho education pieces woven into the sessions to help you gain a better understanding of why we do the things we do.

I am seeking women committed and ready to move to the next level of healing. This work-group will meet every week for for 12 weeks. The women selected for this group must attend an intake session (in person or via phone) with Rebecca to insure the group is a good fit. What will I be looking for? Being at a healing place from your traumatic experience where you are ready to do the work required as part of this group, allowing you to make positive and significant changes. In addition, women who are able to commit to attending weekly and be actively involved in the process of group. This means you are able and willing to put in the time outside of group to try new skills and report back on your progress. It also means you are open to being actively involved during group, and committed to moving forward. This is called a “Work”- group because there is an  expectation to do the work, both in and outside of group as part of participation.

Limited spots available. Consider getting on the group sign up list now to ensure your spot is reserved.

Looking for a different type of group than what’s listed here?
