Small Groups

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

 

 

Mending the Soul (Men’s Group):  This Mending the Soul group is for men 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:  TBD
 
Cost:  Groups are $50 per week plus materials. Groups must be fully paid for prior to starting the group unless otherwise agreed upon by group therapist. 
 

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 Alex Rankin, MS, LPC, LMFT Intern.  Please call Alex at 503-568-1510 or email alex@livingwholehearted.com to register of if you have any questions.

From Hurt to Hope (Women’s Group): 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.

When: Tuesday evenings 7:00-8:30, September 17 – December 17
