Groups and Classes
Our groups are all geared toward onboarding the essential skills you need to navigate life's biggest challenges. A lot of people hear the word "group" and worry that they'll have to share their deep dark secrets with a bunch of strangers. Don't sweat it! Our groups are focused on usage. While not a substitute for individual therapy, these programs are meant to accelerate the learning happening in individual counseling.
Our groups are structured more like classes. We do discuss personal experiences, but it's in the context of learning and practicing new skills to navigate the challenges of life. Our groups are a great add-on to therapy and allow you to practice new tools while building a sense of community.

This group is a FREE group, open to the community. Mindfulness is an evidence-based practice defined as "paying attention, on purpose, without judgment". Mindfulness has tons of great evidence for helping with things like depression, anxiety, chronic pain, trauma symptoms, sleep, and stress.
Interoception is our 8th sense. That’s right! We have more than 5 senses. This sense monitors sensation in our heart, lungs, stomach, muscles, etc and relays this information to your brain. Your brain then uses this information as clues to determine current emotion: angry, anxious, excited, etc. Awareness of these important body signals has a tremendous impact on our ability to identify and then regulate our emotions.
This training offers an in-depth introduction and exploration into our 8th sense, the impact of trauma, genetics, and attachment on our sensory system, and how to utilize mindfulness based interventions to effectively navigate clients through some of their most significant trauma symptoms. Attendees will learn how to engage clients in a basic interoception assessment, how to incorporate relevant sensory data into case conceptualization and treatment planning, begin practicing several mindfulness-based tools for trauma-informed intervention, and identify several community resources for additional support in this area.
