You are not alone

Group Therapy is a unique way to learn from and support peers who are dealing with similar issues, normalize feelings, reduce isolation and practice new skills as you develop trusting and healthy relationships. 

We create groups for clients to provide help with common challenges and share healthy, more adaptive ways to manage difficulties. It is also a great option for those seeking to supplement their individual therapy or for those with financial constraints. 

If there is a group that you would like to see started, our ears are open. To share, CLICK HERE.

Melissa's Group for Female Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse

This group was designed to help women understand the effects of trauma, reduce feelings of shame and guilt, and empower group members in a safe and confidential environment.

It is time to step out of the shadows and start living up to your full potential. Your sexual abuse history does NOT have to define you any more!

Female Survivors of any type of childhood sexual abuse are invited to join. I personally designed it to help women understand the effects of trauma, reduce feelings of shame and guilt, and empower group members in a safe and confidential environment. This 12-session group progresses through 3 stages: Trauma and Its Manifestations, Telling Your Story, and Empowerment. Groups are limited to 3-5 members to ensure the safety and the comfort they need to disclose difficult information.

 

Group members will explore:

  • the effects of trauma
  • maladaptive coping strategies
  • emotional blocks
  • support systems
  • self care
  • guilt, shame and stigma
  • feelings of isolation
  • vulnerability as a child
  • empowerment
  • self-esteem
  • healthy coping mechanisms
  • developing healthy relationships

If you would like to know more about the group or schedule a group intake, please feel free to contact me for further information.

Monarch Group For Black Adult Survivors of
Female Childhood Sexual Abuse

Facilitated by Jasmine Rivera-Hackley, LMSW, this brand new group was created with Black Women in mind and heart. The unique experiences, demands, roles, burdens,  expectations and the objectification and sexualization of the Black Girl/ Woman in The United States of American makes this particular trauma complex and often ignored.  We wanted to design a space for our Queens where you can hold court, feel supported, be understood and be celebrated without fear of judgment, stereotyping or gaslighting. You are the Monarch of your life. Together we can work on rebuilding so you can enjoy your empire.

Just like a Queen, the Monarch Butterfly was meant to fly beautifully and freely. It is time to accept your birth right.

Black Female Survivors of of childhood sexual abuse are welcome here. Chamin Ajjan LCSW, A-CBT, CST and Jasmine Rivera-Hackley, LMSW are dedicated to designing a program that is safe, meaningful, healing and  transformational.  Like Melissa’s Group, this 12-session group progresses through 3 stages: Trauma and Its Manifestations, Telling Your Story, and Empowerment. But like the Queens it is designed for, it is more nuanced and distinctive.

Group members will explore:

  • the intersectionality of race and sexual trauma
  • emotional blocks
  • generational trauma/challenges
  • prioritizing yourself
  • guilt, shame and stigma
  • feelings of isolation
  • the adultification a Black Girl
  • empowerment
  • early objectification and sexualization
  • healthy coping mechanisms 
  • developing healthy relationships and setting boundaries

If you would like to know more about the group or schedule a group intake, please feel free to contact me for further information.
