Group Therapy

Group therapy is a place of communal exploration, growth, and healing. To be held and to hold the group space is sacred and life changing work. Groups create a deeply experiential social environment that allows one to reflect honestly on their community skills and to change unhelpful patterns. Groups offer a powerful space of witnessing, care, and attunement. Groups are a wonderful tool for "shaking things up" in your life or your individual therapy. Group work is especially potent for issues of isolation and loneliness, anxiety, depression, grief, solipsism, and metamorphosis.  Finally, groups are significantly more affordable than individual therapy.

This peer support group focuses on bringing trans and gender expansive people together to build our capacity to experience pleasure and ease in our bodies as a mode of healing, growth, and resistance. This group is an oasis, a space for rest, connection, and gentle transformation. Trans and gender expansive individuals are often forgotten or ignored in their process of integrating erotic belonging in their bodies, communities, and the collective psyche. Sex, desire, the erotic, and/or the absence of desire are central to self-actualization, and have beautiful, strange, exhilarating, and sometimes dysregulating manifestations in all bodies, including those of trans and gender expansive people. Together, we will explore the space of trans and gender expansive desire and absence of desire. We will encounter the meaning of queer erotic wholeness and use it for healing. This support group will be co-led by myself and my trans non-binary partner. This group is an offering from our own experience as embodied, trans therapists, sexual-beings-in-healing, and advocates for liberation. We ask for a three month minimum commitment to attending weekly groups. You are invited to continue attending after that period for as long as the space is supportive to you. New members will be accepted as space opens. Please apply at any time. Up to 8 participants. 

Relational Process Group

Thursdays, 7pm - 8:30pm

In person @ Georgetown Healing Arts

Process groups offer us a unique opportunity to hold and be held in our process within a growth and healing oriented community. In a process group, the individuals form a circle in which they mirror, play, experiment, enact, and care for one another. This format is fundamentally experiential and has the potential to be deeply transformative. Process groups offer individual transformation, but more importantly, they are a rare and sacred opportunity to be part of healing beyond the individual. For this reason, process groups are profound tools for healing isolation, working through issues of trust, and building skills that lead to a life of connection and right relationship. Six month commitment, apply anytime, up to 8 participants, facilitated by Blaze.

Liberated relationships are one of the ways we actually create abundant justice, the understanding that there is enough attention, care, resource, and connection for all of us to access belonging, to be in our dignity, and to be safe in community. - Adrienne Maree Brown, 2019
