Restoring the Heart

Group therapy for survivors of childhood sexual abuse

Facilitated by Shannon Farrouge, MA LPC
13-week group  •  Next start date:  TBA

One out of every three women are sexually abused as a child or adolescent. Though we try to forget, hide, and minimize the impact of this pain, the truth is that our abuse deeply shapes our views of God, self, and others in deeper ways then we recognize. Facing our abuse takes great courage. This group helps you, not only to identify the consequences of trauma, but to also find ways to heal, cope, and redeem your story. Through confidential and safe facilitation, this group provides support among women who do understand and therapists who know the way through this journey. Do not let your past abuse take any more from your life…restoration IS possible.

To determine readiness, all participants are required to have an intake with Shannon White or be a direct referral from Terra Mattson. Cost is $50/week or $625 if paid upfront.  For more information or to inquire about upcoming dates for this small group, contact Shannon Farrouge at 503-888-1369 or


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

Facilitated by Shannon Farrouge, MA LPC
10-week group  •  Next start date:  TBA

Attend this class and discover how you can make the changes needed to improve your life and relationships. The four areas that we’ll 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.

Recommended Reading: Changes That Heal by Dr. Henry Cloud (bestselling author of Boundaries). Cost is $50/week or $475 if paid up front. For more information or to inquire about upcoming dates for this small group, contact Shannon Farrouge at 503-888-1369 or
