When seeking to better your mental and emotional well-being, you should find someone with professional knowledge, yet can personally relate to help you navigate the process of change. Change is not easy and if gone unchallenged, nothing changes. Therefore, my purpose at Sup-HER Circle is to help you recognize the areas you desire to change and assist you in obtaining the necessary tools to implement the changes you wish to see in your life. I have confidence in your abilities, now it is time for us to work collaboratively to overcome those parts of yourself that hold you back. You owe it to yourself!

“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.”

Sup-HER Circle is an organization, founded by a licensed professional counselor, who through training and various life experiences, recognized the need for a space for women to have real life conversations about real life experiences. Discussing issues that remind one of the past can be painful as one’s issues vary at different degrees of seriousness coupled with those around them wishing we would just “let it go!” Sharing our stories in an atmosphere of safety creates change within us, and those around us, as we come to learn we do not have to GROW through our issues alone. My hope is to provide a welcoming, caring, non-judgmental, empowering and overall safe environment to help women explore thoughts, feelings and behaviors that impact her operating as her best self. This includes equipping one with the necessary tools to move past your past and develop healthier habits for purposeful living.

Group & Individual Counseling  Services

Group counseling is a way of serving a small group of clients together in a therapeutic setting with the facilitation of one or more trained mental health professionals. The group format consists of psychoeducation and process groups. Psychoeducational groups consist of education around a specific topic whereas process groups are not centered around a specific topic. 

Individual counseling consists of a one-on-one relationship between the client and a trained mental health professional.

  • What is the difference between closed and open groups?
    Open groups allow new members to join at any time. Closed groups do not allow new members to join at any time. These members start at the same time typically over a period of time.
  • What age do I have to be to attend a group?
    Groups are for women ages 18 and up.
  • What time are the group sessions and how long will they last?
    On Saturday mornings groups are held for one hour. They begin at 10:15am and end at 11:15am. Groups are currently offered 1-2 times per month. Group dates are emailed at the beginning of each month. We hope to add more weekly groups in the future.
  • How do I engage in a group session? Do I have to share in front of everyone?
    The first part of engaging is showing up. You have the right to pass in group. However, please be mindful that group therapy works through sharing. Healing for ourselves and others comes from a willingness to share our truth. Active participation is encouraged (when you are ready).
  • How will I accomplish my goals in a group setting? How many groups do I need to attend?
    Prior to attending group, you will have the opportunity to speak with the group facilitator regarding your goals and whether group would benefit you. If not, the facilitator may refer you to a counselor to work on your goals individually. Also, the number of group members will be assessed often to ensure adequate attention is given to attendees and their goals. Due to the healing process being different for everyone, I cannot provide a number of groups that you will need to attend to accomplish your goals.
  • What if someone shares my information outside of group?
    Each attendee agrees to abide by the confidentiality limits highlighted in the intake paperwork prior to attending group sessions. A breach of confidentiality may result in an attendee no longer being able to attend group sessions.
  • What should I do if I am triggered during a group session?
    This is not uncommon. I am proud of you for being self-aware. You are always encouraged to take care of yourself. Feel free to step out of group if necessary. Additionally, you can try slow deep breaths, counting, using the 5 senses to calm yourself, drinking water, or imaging a safe calm place in your mind. This list isn't all encompassing. Feel free to use skills that work best for you.
  • How many individual counseling sessions do I need to attend?
    Each client's needs are different. Collaboratively, goals are outlined, then a number of sessions are agreed upon to accomplish client goals.
  • Can I attend individual and group counseling sessions simultaneously?
    Yes! Both forms of therapy are effective. Attending both can assist with goal achievement. Depending on individual goals, you may be encouraged to attend group if you are solely participating in individual counseling.
  • If I stop coming to therapy, can I return?
    Absolutely! Life happens and sometimes one may need to step away. You are encouraged to speak with your counselor about your decision to terminate prior to self-terminating. This allows you and your counselor to develop a mental health plan to take care of yourself while you are away from therapy.
