Group Staples©

There are challenges that are common to every community. You could almost say they are staples of every community. It doesn’t mean they are easy but they are a reality for all of us. Heritage Counseling Center recognizes these realities and actually exists to help with a few of them. Therapy groups have long been recognized as an effective way to help. Groups provide an instant small community atmosphere where people can go to be cared for and work out practical strategies for themselves. They are private and safe while at the same time can help one overcome the specific challenges they face.

Here are three groups that we hope to offer year round for years to come. They will become ‘Staples’ to our nearby communities so even though you might not need them today, they will be there for you (or someone you know) if you need them tomorrow or next year. You could say they are Group Staples©.

“For where two or three come together in My name, I am with them.” Matthew 18:20

MOVE: A therapy group that helps those struggling with anxiety

Anxiety can have us in a constant state of disorientation with just about everything that goes on in our lives. It can be paralyzing and crippling, while we watch the world around us continuing to move like business as usual.

The truth is, more than 40 million Americans suffer from some form of anxiety. But a genuine sense of hope and healing can occur through MOVE. Led by Licensed Professional Counselors, individuals will learn about and discuss their anxiety-related struggles in a comfortable group setting over the course of a 10 week program specifically designed by and for anxious individuals.

Take one small step to Move and you will receive the support and coaching necessary to stay moving—to where you want to go.

Transitions: A Safe Space to Walk Through Adolescence

The therapy group, TRANSITIONS, is a small group for adolescents struggling with the many and varied challenges of getting to adulthood.

MEN: Healing for the Masculine Soul

Heritage Counseling Center offers an opportunity for men between the ages of 20 and beyond the group MEN. The men’s group is a time-limited encounter, ten weeks, specifically for men who need the kind of healing that only other men can provide. Unlike other groups that focus on behaviors like addictions or anger, MEN treats the whole man (which will undoubtedly treat the behaviors). We see a man as so much more than just his dysfunctioning parts--his heart, his relationships, his faith, his family and his work. Are you struggling with any of these areas? MEN combines a small group of men working together with professional clinicians (also men) that provides a healing and supportive encounter for ALL who participate.

Noise: Group therapy for the parents of hard to parent kids

Kids don't exactly come with an instruction manual (believe us, we've checked), and while there are a million theories out there on parenting, every child is different and some children in particular come with a bit (or a lot) more Noise than others. While they are as precious and loved as the rest, parenting seems to have a few more challenges than what a parent believes to be usual. The special therapy group Noise was created just for parents of these beloved kids.

Led by licensed professionals and experienced parents, Noise will help guide parents through the not-so-everyday struggles of parenthood by teaching proactive solutions you can use in real life situations. Bring the volume down to levels where everyone in the family can grow and connect in healthier ways.
