“Owning our story and loving ourselves through it is the bravest thing we will ever do.” - Brene Brown
“Through braving shame you will open the door to an increased ability for self-love and acceptance as well as enhance your ability to connect to others in a meaningful way.”
Why do we need to be brave in the face of shame? Our experiences with shame are rarely identified and even more rarely talked about or shared, making coping with shame difficult. Shame drives disconnection, fear, and isolation. It is the fear that the parts of ourselves we perceive as flawed or the deep secret that we are “not good enough” will be exposed and we will be left vulnerable and alone. When a person is unable to live as they want or to connect with others in a meaningful way shame becomes the basis to a wide variety of maladaptive behaviors and mental discomfort.
This 8-week psycho-educational group was created to provide a safe arena for you to gain a deeper understanding of shame, its impacts, and tools for combating its destructive effects in your own life. We will work together to build resilience, increase self-awareness, and deepen our connection to ourselves and others. The group approach to shame resilience is particularly effective because the impact of shame is automatically diminished when we no longer feel alone in our experience. The best part is you will all of this while embracing yourself authentically and lovingly. The change can be powerful and life-altering and I am honored to help support you through this journey.
***Please take note that this group is not a support group that dives deep into your story, but a group designed to learn skills and tools for helping you cope with how shame has impacted your life. This group is designed to be a supplement to individual therapy work or assist people in building skills and knowledge in the specific area of shame and shame resilience.
