Worry & Anxiety Group (based on Dr. Reid Wilson’s work):

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:  The group meets weekly on Monday evenings, 7-8:20pm beginning September 17; Suite 204
 
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

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
