Support Group for Parents of Kids with ADHD

Parenting is challenging. Parenting a child with ADHD and/or other forms of neurodiversity takes the challenge to a whole other level. Because our children are, by definition, not typical, it’s easy to feel isolated. However, you are not alone.

This group brings together parents of neurodivergent children in a safe, non-judgmental space. Here, no one will ask why you “allow” your child to behave a certain way, or push solutions that may work for typically developing children but don’t work for yours. Your experience will be valued and respected. Your frustrations will be met with resonance empathy, and your triumphs will be celebrated.

The group will offer opportunities to share and commiserate. It will also offer expert guidance, parenting skills, and specific tools to help you and your child thrive together.

  • Date/Time: Tuesdays 1:00pm-2:15pm ET
  • Location: Meets Online
  • Fee: $75 per session/ $750 for 10 Sessions starting in January 2024

Emily Shapiro, MS, LMFT, will be leading the Parents of Kids with ADHD Support Group.

Support Group For BIPOC Moms

They say it takes a village to raise a child, but who’s supporting the mother? And what if you don’t have a village, your village is too busy, or lives far away? Or perhaps you need a bigger village.

 
As BIPOC moms, we live with societal, cultural, and/or familial expectations that may feel like another weight on our shoulders along with our children and family’s needs. This moms support group can serve to be a holding space for those who need their voices to be heard while also celebrating both big and small victories.
 
Whether you are a new mom struggling with motherhood or have been in this role for several years now, this group can be a safe space for you to explore the ups and downs of motherhood. Even when you’re surrounded by your little ones day in and day out, it can feel lonely and isolating. Come together with other moms and share collectively in hopes of finding connection, inspiration, and healing through each other’s stories. 
 
This group will also address stress management skills, parenting styles and strategies, as well as ways to practice self-care and build realistic resiliency skills.
 

  • For: BIPOC Mothers (Black, Indigenous and People Of Color)  of newborns to school age children up to 10 years old
  • Date/Time: TBD, starting this spring
  • Location: Meets online
  • Fee: $65 per session, for 10 weeks  

 

Maria Del Rosario, LMHC will be leading the Support Group for BIPOC Moms

Grief Support Group

Are you struggling with grief that society and others, such as family or friends, may not fully acknowledge or understand? Grief is the profound and natural sorrow we feel when we experience loss of any kind. When you are grieving a loss it is common to feel dazed or confused, sad and isolated, stigmatized, overwhelmed, exhausted, and possibly ashamed. Not knowing how or where to garner appropriate support can prolong the emotional pain and suffering.

While recognizing loss through death of a loved one is most notable when we think of grief, there are many experiences of loss that can hit just as hard such as loss of a beloved pet, upheaval of losing one’s home or job, ongoing battles with infertility or adoption, mourning the end of a close friendship, and pain associated with the loss of a “taboo” or illegitimate relationship partner. You may also be struggling with the profound emotional impact of world events such as war, mass shootings, and other collective traumas.

Our Grief Support Group offers a safe and supportive space to connect with others who understand the uniqueness and intricacies of grief. We’ll navigate the journey through personal stories, discuss coping skills, experiential practices and talk about turning the pain of grief into renewed purpose.

If this resonates with you, know your grief matters and has value.  Details below, reach out and join this group for support and to begin the process of healing.

  • Date/time: Wednesdays, 5:30PM-6:45pm EST, capped at 8 participants
  • Location: Meets Online (Virtual)
  • Fee: $60 per session/$480 total for 8 consecutive sessions

Veronica Vaiti, LCSW-R, CCATP will be leading the Grief Support Group.

FAQ

How does an online support group work?
All participants who register for a particular online support group will receive a password protected Zoom link to join the support group from the comfort of their own home at the designated day and time. We ask all participants to keep their videos on during the duration of the group, which can be anywhere from 60-75 minutes, to enhance their sense of connection and build their relationship with other group members and the group leader.

Who do I contact to learn more about the Support Groups?
Send an email to Alyssa at supportgroups@bhavatherapygroup.com or call her direct line (551) 579-4053.

What if I want to sign up but can’t commit to attending all of the sessions?
In order to build connections with support group participants, and therefore enhance your experience in the support group, we ask that you do your best to attend every group session. If you have more specific questions, please connect with Alyssa at the contact info above.

Can I use my health insurance coverage for the support group fee?
Health insurance is not accepted for support groups. While our support groups are led by licensed mental health clinicians, our support groups are led in a coaching format. This allows our support groups to be virtual and accessible to individuals across the country.

Do I have to be in therapy to join a support group?
No, you do not have to be in therapy to join a support group! Support groups are a safe space to explore your emotions and our groups are oftentimes geared towards a specific age group or topic that you have in common. If you have additional mental health support outside of the group that is great, though it is not a requirement to join a group.

Are payment plans available?
Yes, payment plans are available and can be discussed when you sign up for the group. Depending on each group, 1 or 2 sliding scale spots are also available if the full cost of the group is inaccessible.
