Small Groups

 

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:  Wednesday evenings from 7-8:20pmJanuary 3rd – March 21st
             Thursday afternoons: 11:30-12:50pm January 4th – March 22nd

 

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 Felicia Wallberg, PC and Shannon Farrouge, LPC (options for insurance reimbursement available)  
 
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. 
 
If you identify with some of the following symptoms of codependency, you are not alone: feeling consumed by other people’s problems, seeking to control or “fix” those around you, and losing sight of what you actually have control or influence over. 
 
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. 
 
Details: 
$50 per week with options for insurance available / $625 if paid up-front

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 shannon@livingwholehearted.com.

 

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 shannon@livingwholehearted.com.
