Small Groups



Raising Sexually Healthy Kids (Parents Group):  This workshop is for parents wondering how to instill a healthy attitude about sex and sexuality in their children, especially if they are not entirely sure what that is!  We will define “healthy sexuality” as well as discuss specific educational tasks during each development period in your child’s life to give you the confidence you know what you’re doing in this area.   We will also learn tools to approach the subject and talk about this all-too often challenging topic with your kids.  Come to grow in you own awareness of this topic just as much to learn how to raise sexually healthy kids.  
When:  Mondays 6:30-8pm on 4/6, 4/13, and 4/20.
Cost:  $150 per couple (limited to 10 couples).  
Facilitated by Melinda Arnold, MA, LPC, NCC, CST.  For questions or to register, contact Melinda at 503-406-8848 or at



Mending the Soul (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:  This group meets 7pm-8:20pm at the Living Wholehearted Offices beginning Feb.5-April 29 with a break March 25.  

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
