New Group - Loneliness
Julia Baum Therapy - Group Therapy - Loneliness.jpg

Do you struggle with feelings of loneliness? Working with 100's of clients over the years, one thing I've noticed is that a surprising number of people struggle with loneliness, and sadly, many do it alone -- without realizing that so many people around them are suffering similarly in silence. Whether you're going through a rough patch, just moved to the city, or haven't felt a part of something for a while, a support group with others who relate can help.

I'll be facilitating a support group to address loneliness this fall in collaboration with My Wellbeing. Connect with others who are experiencing similar feelings and move toward more meaningful connections, together.

Wednesdays 3-4p September 12-October 17
