Calm Mind, Calm Body Therapy Group
Cultivate calm and generate joy within a small supportive group of women.
Anxiety or stress can take away the joy of the things you do and leave you feeling uneasy. This takes a toll on how you feel about yourself, your energy and your relationships. Your body can bear the brunt of it with tension, pain, or difficulty relaxing.
Anxiety and stress are all too common, and you are not alone if you struggle with these issues. Our fast-paced culture and focus on doing and achieving can add to personal difficulties such as a history of trauma, family and work demands, a lack of self-confidence, life transitions, perfectionism, or social discomfort, leaving you feeling worried, worn thin and distressed.
By connecting with others with similar struggles, you can feel less alone and benefit from the support of the group members. We limit group membership to no more than eight people to cultivate an intimate and trusting atmosphere.
Individuals are encouraged to make use of their collective creativity and wisdom in service to shared growth. This group blends mindfulness practices with body awareness, movement and creative expression to help you discover a deeper sense of calm and wellbeing.

Who Can Benefit
This group is appropriate for adult women with mild to moderate anxiety or stress who feel comfortable enough in a group to share and participate.
If you have more extreme anxiety or panic, we would be happy to talk with you to see if this group or other resources would be a good fit for you.
Older adolescents may be a good fit depending on the needs of the individual and the makeup of the group.

If you think this group might be a good fit for you, we’d love to take a look at this option.
1. Get in touch to schedule a free phone consultation. We’ll talk about your needs and whether the group is right for you–and answer any questions you have.
If you are a current client with us, you don’t need to do the phone consultation –just talk to your therapist about your interest.
2. If we decide it makes sense for you to join the group, we’ll get you scheduled for your first session; you’ll complete some paperwork to get you started.
