Groups

SPOSA, Women's Group

Easter Bunny Costume

The purpose of this therapy group is to support the healing for women who’ve experienced trauma due to betrayal through affairs, out of control sexual behavior, sex addiction, or other betrayals. Upon discovery of these secrets, members entering group may be experiencing fear, decreased self-esteem, confusion, obsessive thoughts, hyper-vigilance, other intense emotions, and feeling “crazy.” Group members experience healing through shared experiences, understanding, empathy, and coping skills. Since sexual betrayal often occurs in an atmosphere of secrets, the connection with and openness to group members helps decrease this sense of aloneness.

Led by Claudia Thompson, LMFT-S, LPC-S, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. This group is held during the week at lunchtime. 90-minutes. A screening appointment is required. Please contact Emily Gardner to schedule, 512-994-2588.

Making This Moment: Process-Based Art Group

Easter Bunny Costume

Sometimes it seems like there just aren’t words to express how you’re feeling. In this group, we will make art. We will tell our stories. We will imagine what our feelings look like through color, texture, rhythm and imagery. We welcome you whether you are someone who already enjoys making art or hasn’t drawn since you were very young. This is a process based art group. This means that we will not be focusing on the final result of your creation or making “good” art. You will get to explore your imagination, grow in your creativity, and be listened to.

This group is intended for adults who are looking to improve their self-confidence, manage anxiety and stress, and practice caring for themselves. Each week will feature a new guided activity. You will find yourself painting, drawing, collaging, journaling, and finding your creative rhythm. Please wear clothes you are okay with getting messy (paint doesn’t come out of clothes easily).

Mondays from 6:30-8:00 pm
In person at the Enhancing Intimacy office
$350 for the 7-week session. Payment options available. Art supplies are provided.

Please reach out to us at enhancingintimacyaustin@gmail.com or 512-994-2588 if you're interested in joining our next session. Potential members will start by completing a free consultation with Skylar Naron to meet, learn more about the group, discuss what your hopes and expectations are, and see if it’s a good overall fit. Scheduling a pre-group consultation is not a commitment to join the group.

Led by Emily Gardner, CTRS and Skylar Naron, LPC-Associate.

New Moms Therapy Group

Bringing a new human into the world can be a rollercoaster of an experience. In this group, we will come together to listen to each other, process all the feelings, and be in community. This therapy group will be focused on processing the daily joys and struggles of new parenthood with others who can listen and empathize with the life change you are experiencing. Topics that may be explored include: boundaries, relationships, intimacy, identity as a new Mom, parenting, self-care, mindfulness, and compassion.

Fridays from 9:45- 11:30 am
In person at the Enhancing Intimacy office
$100 per month. Payment options available.
Led by Jen Hill, Counseling Intern and Thy Tran, Counseling Intern.

Please reach out to us at enhancingintimacyaustin@gmail.com or 512-994-2588 if you're interested in joining this group. Potential members will start by completing a free 30 minute video call consultation with Jen Hill and Thy Tran to meet, learn more about the group, discuss what your hopes and expectations are, and see if it’s a good overall fit. Scheduling a pre-group consultation is not a commitment to join the group.

This weekly group is open to new Moms and babies who are not independently mobile (i.e. crawling, walking) for the safety of the babies. In order to build a supportive group community, we ask for consistent attendance in this ongoing group.

This group is intended for adults who identify as a new Mom and feel they would find benefit in being in this group. We are intentionally not referring to the participants in this group as women. We want to be inclusive in our language as much as we can and acknowledge that not all people who give birth identify as women. We also want to acknowledge that not all women who are new parents have given birth. With that said, if you feel you would benefit from this group but aren't sure, please contact us anyways so we can complete an initial consultation.
