Support Groups

Most of my work is with individuals. I also facilitate six different ongoing monthly support groups and one bimonthly group, listed below with dates (subject to change) through December, 2024. These groups are designed to follow or complement a course of individual cognitive-behavioral therapy offered by myself or another therapist. Most offer members an optional private Facebook Group, to extend the support they experience in monthly sessions. Since the Pandemic, groups have included virtual participation by several leaders in the field, including Stefan Hofmann, David Carbonell, Karen Cassiday, Ken Goodman, David Yusko, Anna Christie, Charles Mansueto, Christina Pearson and Jennifer Shannon. Please call me for further information or to register in advance for a group. There are currently openings in most of my groups. If you have already attended a group at some point in the past, it is fine to drop in again. Just contact me to say when you’d like to come, or RSVP on SignUpGenius. For 90-minute sessions, suggested fees are $75 per meeting, or $300 for any six meetings if paid in advance. Two-hour monthly groups are $100 or $500 for six meetings if paid in advance. Six-session “punchcards” expire one year from date of purchase. If these costs are prohibitive, you may pay a reduced fee of any amount that is comfortable for you.
