Recreating Yourself- ONLINE Group
My online group, Recreating Yourself, is focused on developing a vision of what you want your new life to be, and identifying the next steps for recreating your life so you can move forward. Divorce is the starting point - transformation is the work we do in the group. Once the trauma of the separation has been worked through, the deeper work begins. The focus of this group is placed on the individual and the relationship with oneself. You will meet people who are working on moving beyond their divorces to have healthier relationships, develop more self knowledge, and create deeper connections with yourself and others. This online group is for those that have already finished the divorce process, or are in the ending stages, and are ready to being their new lives. Most group members are in a phase of trying to recreate their lives. Change takes many forms: moving on, living separately from their partners, final stages of legal process, starting to date, re-establishing a social life, or getting used to being alone. My online group, Recreating Yourself, focuses on examining all of these changes and stages. Members observe how they may go through similar patterns. They get feedback on how to break out of this based on others’ experiences. Ultimately, members learn how to create their ideal “present”, so they can move forward and cultivate healthy relationships. Together we will explore: Who you are now What you have learned about yourself What you want, who you want to be Having boundaries and practicing them How to have happier, better relationships with family and friends We will also look at the parts of yourself that you'd like to heal that had nothing to do with your marriage, and look at ways you may have been sabotaging yourself - such as not living up to your potential, not having the career that you want, not managing your money well, or using unhealthy coping mechanisms and addictions. Looking at your family of origin, we can help identify the reasons you are holding on to certain unhelpful habits. Additional group topics: Healing the damage that happened to your past long-term relationship Moving on to new relationships Moving toward your future How to get used to and be comfortable alone What your greatest fears are for your next relationship Group details: Time: Tuesdays, 11:45 AM - 1 PM PST ONLINE group Ongoing Group with a 12 week initial commitment Co-ed membership Intake therapy session required to join $65 per session *Group starts on July 10*

What we're about

Divorce: Healing and Moving On

My online group, Divorce: Healing and Moving On, focuses on envisioning what members want their lives to be like so they can move forward and create the life and relationships they want. This group will become a safe place for you to share these feelings without fear of judgment, as most group members are in a phase of trying to recreate their lives.

It can take 2-3 years to recover from divorce. You need to create a new identity, discover who you are as a single person, find a sense of belonging within your social circle and your community, and sometimes adjust to single parenthood. Change takes many forms: moving on, living separately from their partners, going through a legal process, starting to date, re-establishing a social life, or getting used to being alone.

In this online support group, you will gain strategies, learn to cope and begin to heal by relating to others in similar situations. Facilitated discussion and sharing of experiences within the group will help you gain insight, acceptance and self-awareness. The group focuses on examining all relationships. Members observe when they take similar roles in their relationships, choose the same types of people, and recreate similar situations. One of the stages of healing is working on the harm that was done in the relationship as well as being accountable for one’s part in the dynamic. Once the trauma of the separation has been worked through, the deeper work begins. The focus is placed on the individual and their relationship with themselves.

Remember- the disorientation of divorce can last a long time, and the process of finding your footing is not linear. There are days when you feel grounded and secure. Then a trigger can lead to a fresh wave of grief, anger and confusion.

If you have kids, you have to re-learn how to deal with your ex, shift communication styles, and become more formal and distant. It may be hard to create new boundaries with your ex. The fighting may continue, or one of you may need more distance while the other does not.
While the emotional upheaval is at its worst, you may be dealing with lawyers and court appearances. This just adds to feelings of frustration, fear and vulnerability. Having group support makes a huge difference because it helps you transform those negative feelings into strength.

Divorce is the starting point and our goal for the group is to transform who members will become. You will meet people who want the right kind of support so you can get through this part of your separation together.
