Therapeutic Gardening Group This is a self care program that allows clients to experience the benefits of nurturing and getting their hands dirty. They plant, tend to and harvest the garden in a safe and healing environment.
Adult Survivors of Childhood Abuse Group This therapy support group is offered September through May. It’s for any woman who experienced abuse or trauma as a child or teen; regardless of the type of abuse experienced (sexual, physical, neglect, emotional and/or mental). Often, abused children develop various ways of surviving trauma(s); these coping strategies may create problems later in life. This group is a safe place to learn to develop skills for living, not just surviving.
