Navigating Relationships

Navigating Relationships

  • • Have relationships so far been challenging or even dumpster fires?
  • • Have the majority of the relationships been a cycle of abuse or chaos?
  • • Are your relationships with friends, family or a romantic partner unsatisfying?
  • • Have you struggled to choose healthy people?
  • • Do you feel lost in determining your boundaries, communicating them and/or enforcing them?

Join us for this therapy journey into navigating relationships.  This group has the following goals/purposes:

  1. To learn what a healthy relationship looks like
  2. To learn how to choose healthy and safe people
  3. How to recover after experiencing abuse (verbal, physical, or sexual)
  4. To find yourself and your voice again

GET STARTED

This is not just a support group.  The experience will be professional therapy led by Caitlin Wise, MS, Registered Intern Mental Health Counselor.  It is designed to be an ongoing experience but will be delivered in four-week modules, meaning no long-term commitment.  Each four week module reserves a seat in the group which has a limited membership.  As a closed group, no new members will be accepted once the module begins.  This is designed to protect the safety and trust that must be built and maintained among the members in order for the group to function.  Thus, payment for the module is required whether or not you attend individual sessions.  No matter how many modules you choose to complete, you will gain a clearer understanding of how to build healthy relationships, find your own voice, and identify safe people.  Most importantly, the group format allows you to build connections with like-minded fellow sojourners that will continue long after the group ends!

Message from your group leader:

For years, I struggled with understanding who I was. I felt like I lost myself in relationships and would end them more confused and lost than I was before. I was not sure how to find safe or healthy people or how to engage them. My relationships seemed to follow a cycle of confusion, disappointment, and chaos. When I finally learned how to form my own identity and what a ‘healthy’ relationship even looked like, my whole life transformed. One of my reasons for becoming a therapist was to provide resources, knowledge, and hope for those who felt like their past would always define them. Healing from an unhealthy or abusive relationship can be challenging but your future does not have to be defined by your past. The story of your life is not defined by one chapter. I look forward to joining you on this journey of transformation!

GET STARTED


Typical group procedures will include “round robins” where each person in the circle responds to a prompt and mostly spontaneous discussion centered around guiding questions provided by the leader.  Creative activities will also be provided which offer an opportunity to non-verbally process thoughts and feelings.  These activities will typically end with an opportunity to verbalize what was felt and thought during the activity.  In between sessions, participants will have assignments designed to facilitate application of group growth to real life.   

The cost for this group experience which provides 6 hours of intensive therapy services is a total of $100 which is payable by the first meeting of the group.  This represents a significant savings over the standard $65 per hour therapy fee!  If any participants are unable to pay in full up front, a deposit of $55 is payable before the first meeting of the group.  A second payment of $55 would be due before the third meeting of the group.  A weekly payment plan of $30 is also available. Note that payment is for your place in the group, whether or not you attend.

If your health insurance coverage is a PPO policy which offers some coverage for out-of network providers – we will be happy to provide a bill of service you can submit for possible reimbursement.  Please note that such reimbursement will require us to diagnose you with a mental health condition which would be noted on the bill of service.    

Ready to transform your relationships?  Fill out the interest form on this page.  We will contact you to schedule a 30 minute assessment appointment with your group leader.  The cost for this session will be $25.  We want to build a group of folks who are ready and able to walk this kind of path.  Everyone is different and this group may not be the best fit for all those learning how to form healthy relationships or finding their voice again. If “Navigating Relationships” is a good fit, you will participate in the process of determining the best day and time for the group to meet.
You will receive the group’s service agreement and informed consent.  That’s it!

We look forward to beginning this important journey to healing and transformation with you.
