Group Description


One of shame’s primary objectives is to disconnect - both from others and from oneself. Shame is the felt sense that there is something uniquely wrong with oneself. In this group, you can expect a combination of psychoeducation on shame as well as experiential processing. The overarching mission of the group is to reduce shame’s effects by practicing vulnerability and connection. You will have the opportunity to gain skills in becoming aware of shame’s specific effects in your life, how to spot it earlier, and what you can do differently to restore connection.

Key Objectives: 

  • Understand the physiological effects of shame on the body
  • Gain awareness of how shame leads to unhealthy coping mechanisms that typically spiral out of control, making the shame worse
  • Practice naming the shame in a structured and guided format, reducing its intensity
  • Practice validating the emotional experiences of others to build new connections

This group is led by trauma informed therapist, Troy Zaslove, LAC.

Classes for as young as 2-5 all the way up to high school.


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