SERENITY group Details
- When: Thursdays 6:00pm-7:30pm starting September 14, 2017
- Where: Meraki Counseling at 541 South Glendora Avenue Suite E Glendora, CA 91741
- Who: This group is perfect for the woman who is feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by the seemingly endless stress, conflict, and betrayal in her relationship, or for the woman who finds herself feeling hurt, angry, or lost after the relationship has ended.
- What: We will cover a variety of topics, depending on the needs of the group. Some topics include setting boundaries, learning to manage intense emotions in a healthy way, learning to communicate assertively and respectfully, self-care, and building a system of support.
- Why: I run groups because I strongly believe in and have experienced the power of community and social support. Groups provide a safe space to share, ask questions, and receive feedback from others who are struggling (or have struggled) with similar concerns. I am passionate about bringing together betrayed partners to find a strong network of support and to feel less alone.
- Cost: The investment for group is $260 per month. This is paid in full on the 1st of every month and is charged to the credit card you provide. This holds your place in the group. Insurance may reimburse you for a portion of the cost if you have out-of-network benefits. Please call your insurance company and ask what your out-of-network mental health benefits are for CPT code 90853 if you want to determine the reimbursement rates.
Please note that a pre-group intake session is required before joining a group. Also, meeting with an individual therapist is highly recommended, though it is not required.
*There are only a few spots available!
Who runs the SERENITY group?
I'm Christene Lozano, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Addiction Therapist, and founder of Meraki Counseling in Glendora, CA. I have facilitated sex and porn addiction groups for men, as well as women's groups for partners of sex and porn addicts. As the intensive outpatient program director for Sano Center, I have also facilitated psychoeducation classes for sex and porn addiction, as well as mindfulness-based relapse prevention classes for sex addiction. I have witnessed firsthand the healing and growth that comes from the loving support and vulnerability of groups. I'd love for you to experience this as well!
Groups are an amazing way for betrayed partners to:
- Relate to each other and feel validated in their experiences
- Learn healthy coping skills to help manage challenging and overwhelming emotions
- Feel less alone in their struggles
