Healing from Toxic Relationships
Relationships can be challenging, but when they go from difficult to toxic, we all need some support to overcome that. This group is focused on healing from toxic relationships. Whether you find yourself recently out of or still in one of these partnerships, they can leave you feeling isolated, confused and ashamed. Come gather in a safe space with others who can relate to your situation, and let's heal together.
Managing Anxiety Through Conscious Living
Are you experiencing anxiety, uncertainty, or apprehension of the future? Whether you are feeling stuck, stagnant, unsettled, or a complete ball of nerves, this is the group for you. If you are looking for a safe place to process your fears, healthy ways to manage stress and anxiety, and connect with people who support you on your journey, please join us. In these uncertain times, we are all experiencing some level of anxiety and could use some extra support. In this group, we will offer meditation, mindfulness, guided imagery, and other techniques to assist in finding inner peace. We will find safety and security within, as we become more conscientious of our own bodies, minds, and breath. This is an invitation to network with like-minded people who can relate to similar situations, learn new coping techniques, develop a sense of inner peace, and become more conscious in an unconscious world.

"Being part of a grief group specific to our loved one's circumstances has helped me tremendously. This group shares a common bond, with interest in experiences, feelings and challenges, where we can grow during the process of sharing and listening. Nina is a great facilitator, making sure we are each comfortable sharing our current struggles and accomplishments. Nina makes sure all who want to, can contribute to the meetings. We do a check-in to see where we all are with our grief process."

"I began working with Nina when I joined a grief group in February of 2019 after the loss of my son. Nina has been so supportive during my grief journey. I credit Nina, my fellow grieving moms and the specialized group for getting me through this very difficult time. Nina guides us through, while letting us do the work and share our pain in our group setting. I am so grateful to have met and worked with Nina over the past few years." - Lisa C.
