Note: I am not running any groups at this time. Below are some groups I have facilitated in the past.
Live with Joy, a Weekly Therapy Group for Women
Description: This group is for women who seek to live lives of greater authenticity, meaning, and joy, and struggle with obstacles such as depression, anxiety, self-criticism, trauma, relationship and boundary challenges, self-esteem, and more.
In this ongoing Tuesday night group, women meet to talk with each other about their challenges, receive support and feedback from one other, and learn tools for living a more joyful, grounded life.
Here is some feedback participants have shared with me about this group:
“Group processing is VERY helpful. More than any other therapy I've tried. There is something unique and incredible about hearing stories and struggles from peers. The reflection I received from that experience has been far greater in my personal evolution than quite honestly anything else I've tried before!”
– "Katherine," age 39
“What your group has created for me is a community where honesty is the point of conversation, where people's strong emotions are honored, and where I don't have any obligation to fix or carry or endure other people's emotions. I have begun to understand that my own feelings can be legitimate and even meaningful to others. I can use my voice. I am still discovering new things every time we meet - things that I didn't know I was missing or didn't know I was suppressing. I look forward to each new session. Thank you for this opportunity!”
– "Karina," age 59
“Group processing was amazingly helpful. I can't describe exactly why. I have done individual therapy in the past and haven't ever felt that I got the same benefit from it as one session in group.”
– "Melissa," age 38
“Group processing is what keeps me coming back. I have a hard time connecting and relating to people. It helps me tremendously to hear other people recognize and voice some of the same issues that I am facing." “
– "Jennifer," age 44
“I leaned that my inner guidance/wisdom/knowing really knows the way and I feel more honed into that inner knowing.”
"Kris is so understanding and open. I felt immediately at ease with her and felt that she didn't make any judgments about people no matter what they said. She is very caring and it showed!" - "Melissa"
“I intellectually know some of the concepts and processes we have discussed. But until now, I haven't been able to take that intellectual knowledge and put it into practice. I LOVE that Kris helps us experience it, rather than just telling us and expecting it just to make sense. Nobody else I know has been able to do that for me!” - "Jennifer"
Living What Matters
A 6-week workshop to help you clarify your life through partnering with nature. You know you want a simpler life. You see through the shallow priorities of mainstream culture (Work harder! Earn more money! Buy more! Consume more! Keep going!). You yearn to jump out of the rat race. But it can be hard to go it alone. You don't have to!
