Music That Moves

Sundays from 2-3:30 pm. Temporarily Cancelled

Seeking Safety

Fridays from 10-11:30am

Overwhelming feelings and emotional pain can be difficult to manage. Individuals may develop patterns in dealing with trauma that rely upon coping skills that are unsafe or have become problematic, keeping people stuck in patterns that no longer work for them and cause even more harm. Seeking safety is a treatment model that seeks to provide new and safe coping skills. This weekly, 2-hour discussion group encourages participants to increase their own repertoire of safe coping skills through group discussion and games using a Seeking Safety Card Deck.

Artist Way

Thursdays from 2:00-3:00 pm.

This is another book group, but it’s also a way of life. It opens a creative side of you that you may think didn’t exist. There’s no pressure in this group. Come follow along in this journey.

Understanding Diagnosis
