Finding Hope & Compassion

During COVID-19

This is a cost-free support group for individuals facing various effects in response to the pandemic, such as depression, a lack of motivation, loneliness, stress, shame toward oneself, and more.

During this unknown process, we will discuss how we find and develop hope and compassion toward oneself and others in the midst of uncertainty. Although the group addresses the effects of COVID-19, it can be applied to any significant life change that brings fear and anxiety.


We will prioritize establishing a supportive group process over Zoom, utilizing psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral techniques to confront belief systems and the inner life.
