What’s it like being in a group?  

  • Participation works best when you commit to showing up, being on time and doing the work in and out of group. Groups are a dynamic way to share with others, get and offer support and create a plan for moving forward in your life. 

  • Everyone will have the chance to talk with one of the facilitators prior to the first meeting to ask questions and get a feel for the process. This will not be a hard sell situation, just a conversation to give you more info. Once you opt in, there will be additional paperwork to complete before the first meeting. 

  • Groups will be no more than 8 participants and there will be two facilitators at each meeting.

A little about why this group was created-

Lorree and Hallie both work with individuals struggling with anxiety and barriers to personal satisfaction. This is something that we see across many stages of life and while the individual struggles might be different, the inner drive to move toward personal fulfillment is very much the same. We also know the healing power of groups working together on common goals, sharing common challenges and holding each other accountable for personal change. The pandemic impacted us both personally and professionally and as we struggled to find our way through 2020 and beyond, it became obvious that having a supportive tribe was crucial to growth and well being.
