Group Description

“Come As You Are” Group

*women only at this time.

Starting April 13th; E/O Thursday 5-6:30pm for 10 meetings

$500 total or BCBS insurance accepted

This group is about understanding the science and psychology of sexual desire for women. This group will use Emily Nagoski’s New York Times Best Seller “Come As You Are” as an educational guide to understanding the roles of stress, mood, trust, and body image within sexuality.

Benefits of attending:

-increase knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and psychology related to sexual arousal and desire

-decrease fear and shame around the ability to embody your own sexuality

-develop/foster a safe and connected relationship to your own body, needs, and desires

-improve communication skills for expressing needs, desires, and boundaries relating to sexual desire

This group is facilitated by trauma therapist, Lauren Mokarry, LPC, and will be led from a trauma-informed perspective.

*Those who have experienced sexual trauma are welcome and encouraged to attend. Those who have not experienced sexual trauma are welcome and encouraged to attend. Education about the impacts of trauma on sexuality and ways to reclaim a safe connection to the body/sexual desire will be discussed, but personal trauma narratives will not be explicitly shared within this group.

"Set Boundaries, Find Peace" defines healthy boundaries and graciously speaks to the often challenging costs of learning to employ healthier boundaries in our lives.

Benefits of attending:

  • Experience community in a safe, structured, and light-hearted space
  • Expand your knowledge about all types of boundaries, why they can often be so challenging to set/maintain, and why they are so important for overall well being
  • Learn and practice how to effectively set and communicate boundaries

Classes focused around anxiety, depression, trauma, mood, OCD, and more.
