ENRICH          Groups 

30.png

Electing to sit with the group of strangers, sharing your issues may sound intimidating at first, but ENRICH groups provides benefits that individual therapy cannot.  Members of past groups are always surprised by how rewarding the group process can be.

 

Groups provide a support network and a sounding board for each other. Group members are there to support, reassure, and challenge each other when necessary.  When you share this space with other members, you are reminded that you are not alone in your situation.  Each member comes into the group with different life circumstances; issues may be different but the support you find in a support group cannot be replicated in any other mode of psychotherapy.  Every member of the group becomes instrumental in each other's process.

Frequency:  Usually once per week, for a pre-arranged or specific period of time.

Ongoing Groups

This ENRICH Support Group

This support group addresses the participants’ need to work, love, function, survive and thrive with individuals coming from the ‘dominant/mainstream’ group within their community. That co-existence can only happen through an appreciation of our differing values. Much of our ENRICH is tied to our values. And most of us view our values as beliefs or principles we consider to be very important…too important to change. Serious cultural conflict arise when people hold incompatible values or when values are not clear. Conflicts also arise when one person refuses to accept the fact that the other person holds something as a value rather than a preference. Preferences can be changed…values cannot. This support group goes beyond a simple discussion of cross cultural (mis)communication in our daily lives.

*ENRICH = Ethnicity, Nationality, Race, Identity, Culture, Heritage

‘New To Your New Country’ Support Group

Transitioning to another country can be a frightening and overwhelming at times. I have seen numerous cases of international young professionals and students regretting the decision to leave their country of birth, migrate to a new and different country, feeling uncertain about their future, feeling disappointed with the job search...or academic results, unable to concentrate, having trouble sleeping, having relationship problems or feeling depressed. This group will help you work with people who are also struggling with similar situations; language barriers, dominant culture work dynamics, relationship interactions, feeling alone, making new friends, and financial constraints just to name a few.

The Relationship Support Group - Would You Date You?

The reality is, many of you wouldn’t know – if you would date you - because you’re too focused on what you’re looking for in a partner. You get enveloped in looking for the best person, rather than being the best person. This group gets you thinking about what makes you happy, how you can be better and how you can be the kind of person that provokes respect and desirability in yourself first, then others second. We will help you introspectively identify, explore and change the unhealthy patterns in your interpersonal relationships, examine your dating repetitions, improve your self-esteem, better understand your attachment/connection/affection style and ultimately, feel better equipped to engage in a new, healthy dating life.

Navigating the Work Environment for the ENRICH Woman

I am offering a Support Group for Women of ENRICH. In this group, we will discuss and examine the unique stressors you, as an ENRICH woman experience in this continuously changing work environment…and specifically, your work environment. Through the lenses of ENRICH (Ethnicity Nationality Race Identity Culture Heritage), we will analyze and define strategies to survive and thrive. We will provide a safe environment where authentic experiences can be discussed. This space is for you, the Women of ENRICH, to identify and verbalize what you experience at work daily.
