Transforming Your Journey Support Group

Beginning October 2nd; 5:30 to 6:45 PM, 1st and 3rd Monday


This support group is intended for survivors of sexual violence. Members of the group must be 18 or older. This is a “drop in” group meaning that members can come to every session or only attend when they are in need of support.


Throughout the year, we will cover the following topics:
· The neuroscience of trauma
· Reconnecting with the body
· Healthy coping skills
· Boundaries
· Self-esteem
· Self care
· Empowerment


We will incorporate several methods of healing, such as talking, journaling, creating, and meditating.
