Women’s Relational Growth Group


This group may be for me if…

  • I keep finding myself in relationships that I feel obligated to continue.  I don’t really enjoy the people I am around.

  • I have a lot of hurts in my past, but it’s just too painful to think about them.  Even when I try to ignore them, they’re always in the back of my mind.

  • When I am faced with confrontation, I either avoid it and want to hide or I explode with irritability and anger.

  • I recognize I give up parts of myself to make and keep other people happy.  I am ready to figure out how to get unstuck.

  • I have been working on how to have healthy relationships for some time now, but I would like to connect with others on a similar journey as me.

How will I benefit from this group?

  • This group is for women who are working toward healthy relationships.

  • Within the group, we will learn how to effectively communicate our emotions, needs, desires, and frustrations without self-sabotaging ourselves.

  • The Relational Growth Group is a safe place to share past hurts and traumatic experiences/memories knowing there is no judgement and complete confidentiality.

  • While this group is a therapy group, additional resources will be made available to those who may benefit.  These may include additional counseling suggestions, support groups, community opportunities, and physical health resources.

  • If you’re entering or going through a life transition, this group will walk alongside you as you navigate new relationships.


The Relational Growth Group is an interpersonal, process-oriented group, meaning growth is achieved through the content shared in the group and the feedback given by the counselor and fellow members.  Members are expected to attend regularly in order to maintain group cohesion and to share to the degree they feel comfortable. There will be times the group as a whole gets stuck, not sure what to say or where to go next, and that’s okay! Being stuck in relationships is normal and we will work through these times together.  In addition to weekly group processing sessions, the counselor will utilize experiential and cognitive behavioral therapy exercises in sessions as well as individual homework assignments.
