Groups and Programs

In addition to individual, couples, and family therapy, there are many opportunities to connect and receive support. This page highlights groups, programs, and retreats available for clients.

Group & Summer Program Offerings

The Partner’s Group:
This group is led by Brynn Cicippio and is specifically created for the romantic partner of the person in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. If you are 25+ years old and your spouse or romantic partner is in recovery, and you doubt yourself, hold back, feel unsteady, and find yourself second-guessing your decisions, this is the group for you! The Partner’s Group will meet for six weeks, and support your growing confidence, letting go of perfection and control, creating new boundaries, and moving past fears and resentment.

EmpowHER Women & Girl Groups
