Group Support & Therapy

Guidance & Inspiration Through Community

Group of Women Happiness Cheerful Concept.jpg

Check out our current group offerings below!

We know joining a group of strangers may sound intimidating at first, but group therapy provides benefits that individual therapy may not. Regularly talking and listening to others helps you put your own problems in perspective, gain new insights and information and you can benefit from the support of the whole group vs. just one therapist.

Many people experience mental health difficulties, but few speak openly about them to people they don't know well. Oftentimes, you may feel like you are the only one struggling — but you're not. It can be a relief to hear others discuss what they're going through, and realize you're not alone.

​Diversity is another important benefit of group therapy. People have different personalities and backgrounds, and they look at situations in different ways. By seeing how other people tackle problems and make positive changes, you can discover a whole range of strategies for facing your own concerns.

Infertility Support

Date to be announced-submit registration form for interest. 
The Journey to pregnancy when facing infertility can be emotionally overwhelming. You may find yourself experiencing mood swings alternating between apathy & numbness to intolerable pain & despair. Just the sight of a baby wrapped in someone's arms or the sight of a stranger with a big, round pregnant belly walking past activates the intense feelings of shame, envy, despair, anger, and hopelessness. We are here to provide you a safe space to share all the emotions on your journey to grow your family. 

Held in person weekly starting October 20th to December 20th on Wednesday from 2:00-3:30pm. 
Miscarriage is a devastating event. You may find yourself repeatedly asking “How could this happen? Why did this happen? and “Why me?” You desperately want someone to understand, but find it hard to connect with others and instead feel isolated, judged, inept, and forgotten. At Charlotte Women’s Counseling, we understand the complexities of emotions that are experienced as you navigate through the grief, confusion, and sadness experienced due to miscarriage. This Group will help you build a support system that allows you to be vulnerable, seen, and heard, is crucial in the healing process.
