Groups offer an opportunity to learn about yourself and others in a facilitated, dynamic social setting. They are a space to connect with others, develop a sense of community, learn skills, take risks, and work through social challenges. During the COVID pandemic, these groups are taking place online. An in-person group may be starting in Southern Oregon in Fall 2021. Please check back for updates.

Learn about yourself as you connect with others in this confidential, supportive space for male-identified folks and nonbinary individuals in male bodies. This group is for adults age 18 and older. We will meet weekly via a secure online platform. An eight session commitment is requested, and sliding scale options are available for those in need.

What is a Process Group?

A process group focuses on the here-and-now interactions between group members. Our time will be a mixture of group, individual and interpersonal work, focused on what is present for each of us when we gather. The content of our sessions will be responsive to the needs, interests, and desires of group members. A process group can be an excellent adjunct to individual psychotherapy, and participation in concurrent individual therapy is recommended. 

 

Who may benefit from this group?

This type of group may be supportive for anyone seeking personal growth, social learning, and a sense of community and connection with others. Although there are no guarantees, many participants find process groups helpful for reducing social isolation, softening patterns of shame, learning how to communicate feelings, increasing emotional intelligence, and learning how to receive support from others, among other potential benefits. Please schedule a free, 20-min consultation to see if this group might be a good fit for you.

Process groups give participants an opportunity to learn about themselves through relationships with others, inclusive of their differences. The exploration of difference - and how each person responds to it - is an integral part of a process group, and diverse identities are welcome and encouraged. Adults of all identities, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and ability, are invited to participate.

When: Groups meet weekly. 8 session commitment requested.

 

Where: via a secure video platform

 

Investment: $40 per session. Sliding scale options available.
