Group Counseling


Group counseling provides a space where you can learn to share openly with others and express your thoughts and feelings. Group counseling is a vehicle to find support, learn from each other, practice new behaviors, and gain self-understanding.


We have a process group forming specifically for married women entitled “Holding ME while becoming WE.” In our work with individuals and couples, we have found many women struggle with preserving their individual identity within the bounds of marriage – whether it is a marriage of 6 months, 6 years, or 16 years. The intention of this group is to promote self-exploration and self-discovery while taking on the role of wife.

Sessions will take place every other Tuesday from 6:00-7:30pm, are $65/group session, and will be co-facilitated by Megan W. Breadhead, MS, MDiv, LPC and myself, Melissa Ann Lester, MS, LAPC, NCC. This is an open and affirming group, so please pass our information along to any woman you feel might be interested! Please click on the link below for our flyer.
