Group therapy can be a place to find support, connection and health relationships for processing experiences. Being in a group therapy setting facilitated by a trained therapist can provide a space to mirror and reflect how we experience others in relationship and how others experience us. If you are looking for an opportunity to connect more deeply with others who are looking for relational healing, check out our current groups below and reach out to us at 616-207-2727, or through our contact page to learn more and get connected.

WOMEN'S THERAPY Retreat - A journey to reclaim the joy of your life!

Women often articulate a sense of feeling lost, disconnected, and alone even though they are giving so much to others. More and more women are not sure how to be in deep connection with others including, lovers, children, family and friends. These same women are giving everything they have to these people and relationships. Women sometimes feel in competition with other women, judged by other women and in a toxic cycle with women that leave them to believe that other women cannot be trusted. This experience can be isolating and lonely and cause so much emotional pain and anxiety, leading women to try to over manage and control rather than connect. Women are actually designed to be connected and in support of each other rather than against each other. It will take a lot of work to reclaim this story and this retreat is a step towards healing those negative stories.

This equine-assisted personal healing retreat for women is going to offer an opportunity to transform those long held beliefs that have created patterns of disconnection. Women who participate in this retreat will revive hurt parts of themselves and find openness and freedom. We will look at narratives and stories that have cause separation from important parts of ourselves and reclaim a story of truth, depth and wholeness.

This retreat is designed best for Women who are looking to deepen a sense of knowing within themselves. If you are a woman who has struggled in relationships and has found yourself lonely and burnt out, this is for you. We will focus on understanding the power of your voice, finding identity when pulled in conflicting directions, and strengthening relationship with self and others using the power of the nature, horses, and experiential therapy techniques. This retreat is led by Therapist Tracy Thompson LPC.

This group is for men to heal and grow. Men have a unique set of struggles in both the upbringings and societal expectations. Men often end up frozen and isolated. There are pressures to perform and provide that can lead to an expectation that they are strong and independent. These understandings have their place and help men to do incredible things, but men are often left feeling alone and disconnected. Men don't feel free to be their true selves and often aren't even sure who their true self is. This group is a place to discover and be supported on a journey of personal and emotional growth. This group will provide safety and challenge alike, giving each man a place to be seen as his whole-self while struggling through difficulties of their past and present.
