Counseling groups, classes & workshops allow us to support each other in a broad spectrum of topics that encourage our growth.

The center holds a variety of classes, events and workshops throughout the year. Most meetings are conducted in our group room, which offers a furnished, private space.


Our weekly support groups are facilitated by only licensed counselors. Group members encourage each other with ongoing mutual support and feedback.

If you are a counselor interested in partnering with the Center to provide a workshop oriented toward healing, support and education, please contact Directors Dr. Nancy Lardo and Harlee Abromson.

Weekly Groups

Group Leader: To Be Announced

Time: To Be Announced

Location: Group Room, Second Floor, 
The Center for Counseling Arts,

Fresh Air is a counseling group to help those of us who support a loved one with anxiety or depression. Spouses, friends, family members, partners and caregivers explore life experiences and discover new resources to create positive change.

Anxiety: feelings ranging from uneasiness to immobilizing bouts of terror often leave loved ones frustrated, unsure of how to help or even how to meet their own self-care needs.

Depression: feeling sad, irritable and a decrease in motivation or energy can impair feelings of worth, success and hope.

The Next Step: Fresh understandings and life changes are possible with new support, insightful empathy and encouragement.

Our Weekly Format

Arrival:

Participants share their experiences, news and discoveries in a welcoming circle.
Educational materials: New skills and consistent approaches are offered step-by-step with true-to-life examples for all of us.
Q & A: A group discussion, with questions and answers, elaborates on the day’s tools and concludes our meeting.
