A group experience is different than individual therapy. It allows people to learn things they might not learn any other way. Most participants voice a feeling of being relieved to learn that they are not alone and that others have similar issues. They get support from people, who may understand their struggles better than family and friends. Despite the difficult challenges experienced by many of our participants, there has been much laughter and many deeply moving stories.Â Group members have voiced feeling that the group has given them a circle of people who really care about them and will listen to their dilemmas.Â They report learning a lot from listening to how others are handling similar issues.Â Most feel a reduction in the sense of isolation.
TWO Groups: Size 4-8 people. All groups are for both men and women. Usual length is 90 minutes but may be less if size is less than 6.

Groups have been friendly and welcoming to new members. New members are asked to give themselves 2 months to assess if the group is a fit for them.
