About the group:
Nourish is an ongoing process group for adults with a history of or current eating and/or body image struggles. This group will benefit members in their eating disorder recovery to strengthen their relationship to others and ultimately with themselves. Group is a healing space to change old patterns of relating and can provide support in exploring family of origin issues, anxiety, shame, depression, improving relationship skills, and figuring out how to live life more aligned with core values.
All gender identities, sexual orientations, and backgrounds welcome.
Wednesdays: 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM
Fee: $50 per group
I ask for a 3 month commitment to decide if group is a good fit.
Feel free to contact me to see how group can be helpful to you!
about the therapist:
You can find out more about me here and more about my therapeutic style here. I am credentialed as a Certified Group Psychotherapist which means I have been honored with the designation that group therapy is a specialty of mine and I am committed to continued study in group therapy theory and practice. Additionally I serve on the board of directors of the Austin Group Psychotherapy Society. All of this means I am a true "groupie" and strongly believe that group therapy is a major component to personal growth and healing. I am also grateful to serve as the President for Central Texas Eating Disorder Specialists and am excited to blend together two of my passions.
more about GROUP THERAPY:
We are born into a group (a family) and often spend the rest of our lives in a group (school, friends, work, family). We are usually wounded in the context of a group which means we can experience tremendous healing and growth through group work. People who join a group typically want to be able to better relate to others and to feel better about themselves. Group is about two things: 1) mindfully paying attention to thoughts, feelings, and reactions as they happen in the moment and 2) reporting to the group on what is noticed. This helps us develop the ability to experience and understand what is going on in our minds and bodies without immediately acting. Group is a place to explore the facets of who you are and how you interact with others and practice relating to yourself and others in new ways. It's a place to "be seen" and get support with changing old patterns and moving towards living a more meaningful life.
