Ongoing Groups

ON HIATUS – All-Gender Process and Support Group: Finding your place and the gender spectrum can be complex, confusing, joyful, overwhelming and spectacular. Building your Self and Home on your spot on the spectrum can offer a kind of deepening of self that is like nothing else. Whether you are questioning, building or remodeling your relationship to gender all are welcome here. Group meets every other Monday from 6:30-8 PM. Contact AndreAs Neumann-Mascis for more information.

RESUMING Fall 2016- Women of Color Group: The Women of Color support group is for women of color who are at least 23 years of age and older. This is a bi-weekly group that will meet for 8 weeks. It is limited to 10 women. This group is inclusive of women who are LGBTQ, as well as women who are heterosexual. This is an ideal group for women who are interested in developing skills or strengthening existing skills to manage anxiety, depression, relationships, and their professional identity.

Groups are particularly powerful forms of therapy because individuals are presented with an opportunity to share their strengths and struggles in a confidential setting that is designed to reinforce the value of relationships through both professional and peer. For more information, contact Luz Lopez or Dawn Belkin Martinez

The U of SC has an awesome resource in their student services – I don’t know about your patient, but perhaps this could also be a good lead.
