Strengths & Resources: Learning to Manage Stress, Anxiety & Trauma

Led by Heather Baron, MEd, MSS, LCSW 

Accepting New Clients!

Group Begins on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, and meet every Wednesday evening online from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (EDT) for 8 weeks.  The last group will be on June 30th. 
Cost: $85 per session (sliding scale available)

The purpose of this group is to support individuals who want to enhance their ability to self-soothe in order to better cope with stress, anxiety and trauma.  We will learn about how our neurobiology is affected by trauma and other prolonged or extreme stress and explore ways to regulate the nervous system to manage difficult situations and emotions.  Incorporating relationship building, education and experiential techniques, we will draw on members’ existing strengths and resources, learn from and support each other, and utilize practices from EMDR therapy and other modalities.  While we will not actually be processing traumatic experiences in this group, the information and tools learned will be useful for those wanting to do such work in another setting by improving overall coping, self-care and emotional wellness.

This group will be open to new members for the first three weeks, after which it will continue as a closed group.  All group members must also be in concurrent individual therapy, at Phoenix Center or elsewhere.

This is a group for any woman ready to grow, to live your life from a place of feeling whole, and practice being grounded in the present moment.

This is a 12-week group for women who are wishing to grow through trauma, grief, and loss. With a strengths-based focus, we will use experiential techniques and mindfulness meditation to help build connection, safety, grounding in the present, and integration of mind, body, and spirit.

Our center provides experiential group therapy groups for various topics and communities. Our groups are led by experienced licensed therapist with expertise in trauma care and experiential therapy.

These are not groups where we will sit in a circle telling war-stories about trauma or loss. Here, we will cultivate the healing experiences necessary to grow from trauma. Sessions will be facilitated with an emphasis on safety, building strengths, and empowering participants to put change into action. Group sessions will include various embodied and experiential forms of therapy that allow us to move beyond words or narratives. Instead of an emphasis on retelling trauma stories — we will build the strengths necessary to change how trauma lives within us and alter the trajectories of our lives going forward.

Our therapists will contact you directly to introduce themselves, assess for eligibility and answer your questions regarding groups. Clients in the group are expected to be in individual therapy at the Phoenix Center or elsewhere due to the nature of the groups.

Although we only work on a self-pay basis, we are able to provide documentation for clients to submit for out-of-network reimbursement from their insurance provider.
