Small Groups


Positive Life Change:  A group for women over 21 who have experienced mild-to-moderate depression.

Topics covered: * Focus on what is right in your life * Discover your signature strengths * Activities that center on gratitude, kindness, savoring, fun, and you at your best.

Women’s Group:   This Mending the Soul group is for women and specifically designed to help you work through all the abuses in your story – from childhood to any current relationships personally and professionally. These abuses include spiritual, sexual, physical, emotional/mental, and verbal. So many of our stories contain overt abuse, where it is clear and obvious. However, a majority of us have covert abuse, that is harder to define. This group will help you process both types. Our stories are all our own and it is unfair to compare; however, a group like this helps us understand our own stories and brings healing in ways that individual work cannot provide.

When:  The group meets weekly from 12-1:30pm for 12 weeks beginning April 18

Materials:  Each session is accompanied by weekly reading and reflection exercises from two resources:

Mending the Soul: Understanding and Healing Abuse by Steven R. Tracy 

Mending the Soul Workbook for Men and Women – 2nd Edition (2015) and Celestia G. Tracy

Facilitated by Annmarie Johnson, MA, LPC Intern.  Please email to register of if you have any questions.



From Hurt to Hope: Group therapy for women working on healing from the sexual betrayal of their partner. Sexual betrayal, which includes affairs and sexual/porn addictions, can be incredibly painful experiences nothing short of traumatic. All too often the secrets or delayed disclosure of these events leave women feeling lost, unsure of truth, untrusting, angry, depressed, and lonely. In this group, women will be able to process through their experiences in a confidential setting, share their stories with other group members, and learn to establish safety, set boundaries, and grieve to ultimately aid in restoring emotional and relational healing.

Changes that Heal

Four Shifts that Make Everything Better…and that anyone can do!

Attend this class and discover how you can make the changes needed to improve your life and relationships. The four areas that we will focus on are: Bonding, Boundaries, Grace, and Adulthood. God designed people to grow in a specific way, but a number of circumstances can interfere in that process. Applying these biblical principles will help you heal areas of your past that may be getting in the way of your adulthood.

This class is for you if you have struggled with any of these issues: trusting others, getting stuck in perfectionism, finding yourself falling back in to old dysfunctional habits that are not productive, feeling at times that you have not fully matured, struggling with loneliness, having anxiety, guilt, resentment, feelings of inadequacy, grief over broken relationships, and difficulty connecting.

When: The next group is TBD.  Contact Felicia for more information.

Materials: Recommended Reading – Changes That Heal by Dr. Henry Cloud (bestselling author of Boundaries).

Details: Cost is $600 or $50 per week.

Facilitated by Felicia Wallberg, MA, LPC Intern

Attend this class and discover ways to unpack other people’s loads you were never designed to carry. Codependent behavior is very common and can happen when we find that we are caring so intensely for others that we lose sight of ourselves.

Each week participants will have a chance to share their insights and stories as we seek to identify new ways of relating in healthy ways to ourselves and others. Join us as seek to  uncover what God has meant for us to truly carry.
