“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 10 week psycho-educational group was created to provide a safe arena for you to gain a deeper understanding of shame, its impacts, and gain 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 our self and others. The best part is that you will do this while embracing yourself in an authentic and loving way. The change can be powerful and life-alternating and I am honored to help support you through this journey. As you learn and listen to others own their story you will find a strength within you to brave the darkness, speak your truth, and bring light and love into your life.
***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.
