When you experience emotional turmoil, you often feel alone and isolated. For many years, experts have spoken about the “power of the group” – being with others who, though different than you in many ways, share many of the same concerns, challenges or thoughts that you do. In this setting we learn that we are not alone, that there are others “like us” out there.
Whether dealing with medical diagnoses, life transitions or a variety of other emotional challenges, a gathering of individuals who share thoughts and feelings and work together to overcome challenges is a powerful force!
I facilitate support groups for both patients and caregivers. These groups, which vary in size, are both educational and therapeutic in nature.
I presently facilitate ongoing groups for such prestigious organizations as the American Cancer Society, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
