Groups

Group therapy offers a powerful dynamic that can be helpful to participants alone or as an adjunct to individual therapy. One of the most important benefits of group therapy is that it allows participants to experience that they are not alone and that others experience similar challenges and life struggles. So often when we are struggling we feel isolated and alone in our pain. Group therapy fosters a connection with others and allows you to feel seen in a safe environment with trusted others. Additionally, it allows you to not only experience the support of others, but to provide support, allowing the group to benefit from your experience, strength, and resilience.  

Childhood Sexual Assault Survivors Women’s Support Group

This group is an interpersonal support group designed to provide you with a safe and supportive environment to explore the trauma you have experienced and process the impact this trauma may be having on your life. It is common for survivors of such catastrophic events to be left with a wide range of emotions, including feelings of shame, guilt, anger, fear, powerlessness, and feelings of being completely overwhelmed. The experience of sexual abuse in childhood can disrupt development and profoundly impact our adult lives, including our ability to develop supportive and meaningful relationships with healthy boundaries. This group meets weekly, in person, in Pasadena, California, and is a closed group. If you are interested in participating in the group or would like more information, please contact me directly.
