As part of our new services we have launched groups through the use of HIPAA-compliant Zoom. These online groups include Art for Self-Healing and Mind Body Skills. The Art for Self Healing group is a weekly group meant for participants to be able to come together and express their stresses, concerns, and more through the use of art. These group sessions are open to adults and do not require multiple week commitments.
The Mind Body Skills groups are 8-week closed groups facilitated according to the guidelines of the Center for Mind Body Medicine and provide a safe and supportive small group environment to gently begin the journey towards self-discovery, reducing and relieving stress and creating optimal health.
There are currently only adult groups for the Art for Self-Healing online group but there are Mind Body Skills groups for teenagers and adults. These groups are self-pay only groups at $40 per session. If you have questions or concerns about payment or payment arrangements for groups please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to register for any of these groups you can click here and select the group day and time that best suits you. You will be asked to fill in your contact information which will be used to setup your client portal, and confirm your registration for the online group.
