Support Groups

Participating in a Support Group or focused Workshop can be a powerful experience and practical way to work more deeply on a specific challenge. Our Support Groups and Workshops are safe and non-judgmental virtual spaces to explore your feelings and/or learn useful tools.

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 late summer/early fall
  • Location: Meets online

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, 7:15pm-8:45pm  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.

High school is a time full of change, challenge, and all the stress that can come along with it.

This group will be a blend of social support and skills learning, providing you the space to feel heard in community with others and equipping you with the tools needed to cope with stress and find balance.

You can expect to connect with others who may be experiencing similar things, explore your identity and values, learn skills to navigate stress as it naturally arises, and share your experiences in a nonjudgmental space.

  • For: High schoolers any grade
  • Date/Time: TBD, either Tuesday or Sundays from 6:00pm-7:15pm EST depending on need

As a new mom, I was riddled with insecurity, fear, self-doubt and just exhausted. I didn’t think I could find the time to do this group, but I am so incredibly grateful I did. I instantly felt seen, validated and nourished and developed invaluable relationships that I will always cherish.

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 or call her direct line 513-453-6016.

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.
