These group sessions provide clients with the opportunity to regularly nourish the seeds of mindfulness and self-compassion they are growing via guided, structured practice in a safe, group therapy environment, as well as to have some time for connection with others and self-reflection. Sessions are structured and each session is 1 hour in length.
If you would like to participate, please contact Tracy Riley for more information.

Please note that although you can sign up for an open group session right up to the day of the session, if at approximately half a week prior to a given session there are an insufficient number of participants signed up, that specific session will be cancelled.
This 12-session group therapy program is about learning to make friends with yourself: to meet yourself in whatever you are experiencing with understanding, patience, and support.
