This group is an introduction to the basic concepts and skills around identifying and creating healthy boundaries, including identifying various types of boundaries, difficulty with setting boundaries, communicating your needs, and managing the discomfort with setting boundaries.
This group is for individuals who are first and foremost committed to working with a group of individuals in this closed-group for 12 weeks. Boundaries play a huge role in our lives, in all aspects of our life whether it be personal, professional, financial, spiritual or physical. When we can take time to identify our limits and boundaries in each area of our life, we can start to begin feeling more aligned within ourselves and who we are.
The group has a limit of 12 people, and once we cap at 12 the group will close. It is a closed group, which means once it starts no one is able to join in the middle. Group is held weekly on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Each week will have a topic area to review and discuss, and everyone can expect to not only review information from a previous session along with new information in the current but to also expect weekly homework to complete in between our group meetings.
I am licensed in NY, NJ, DC and DE, so anyone in the following states is eligible for this group. If interested and you are ready to sign up, please reach out to me for more information.
