Group Therapy

Discover how supportive and inspiring a small community can be.


Group therapy is a place to find a supportive, compassionate community with whom you can talk about your spiritual, mental, relationship, physical, and vocational health.  Something special happens when space is shared and honored among peers--understanding and empathy, and feeling like you are not alone in your circumstances.  This group therapy aims to leverage or maximize a healthy spiritual life for the benefit of other areas of one’s life, mentioned above.  Group therapy also offers immediate and meaningful access to support and comfort for the feelings and experiences you are having.


The cost for group therapy is $75 per 80 minute session.  For more information, contact Maren via email at to ask questions and learn more about group openings.

Young Adult Therapy Group

If you are 18-25 years old and you want to be together with like-hearted persons going through a similar stage in life, then this is the group for you!  Maren has extensive experience working with young adults experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, life transitions, and seeking self-discovery.  The groups are small—only 3-4 persons in each group.  For the sake of continuity and development of group trust, you will be asked to commit to at least 12 sessions consecutively (allowing for life events and arranged absences, of course).

Mindfulness for Life Group

Based upon the principles and lessons taught in MBSR, Maren will teach and facilitate mindfulness tools in the 5-week small group.  If you have ever wondered about meditation, mindfulness and what that’s all about, or are looking for ways to feel less stressed and less overwhelmed, this is a wonderful opportunity in an intimate setting to learn mindfulness while reflecting upon the stressors, issues, and life changes you might be experiencing.  The group will consist of practice time, check-in and reflection, and homework!  Join the unique opportunity that a small group can be!  Group is limited to 3-4 persons for the 5-week session.

Holistic Life Group

This on-going support group is specifically for persons that are motivated to set goals, follow a vision, or make change in their lives.  So often in life, we experience a health event, a relationship loss or a job change, and we realize that other things in our life also need to change to support the person we have become.  Maybe you want to start meditating or learn how to forgive or eat a better diet or how to grieve or find a wonderful partner.  While the goals might be different, the intent of this group will be encouragement, accountability, and GRACE!  We will use skills such as intuition, visioning, and manifestation within this group setting.  Change is hard.  But with empathetic support from like-hearted peers, it is easier to embrace.  This group is limited to 3-4 persons.

Religious/Spiritual Trauma Recovery Group

This supportive small group will specifically attend to the unique experience of having survived religious and/or spiritual abuse and trauma.  It is a particularly challenging experience to survive, especially given the power of religion to shame and judge us because we are deemed “sinful” or “unworthy” or “unacceptable to God.”  In this group, we will share a safe, compassionate space for each other to begin to heal the wounds of this trauma and abuse, as well as nurture each other’s search for meaning found in new expressions of a healthy spiritual life.  This is a small group, 3-4 persons.
