Starting a woman's group has been a goal of mine since I became an RCC and founded Kindred Counselling. I have done a lot of programming focused on children and teen girls at-risk in my career as a youth worker. I tailored my grad studies to female developmental issues including developing and running an empowerment group for women with children who have special needs.
I like working with women and helping them become the women they want and are meant to be. Taking the time to self-reflect, reassess, dig deep, learn new things relevant to women in your developmental stage, are all things we are going to do in this group. I am so excited to be a part of this and cannot wait to start this life changing group!

It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day aspects of adulting that your chance for self-reflection and investing in your personal growth can be easily unprioritized. But its so important to know who you are and what you stand for as you navigate your way through life. From basic decision-making to clarifying your deepest values, we will collectively work through strategically chosen topics that will strengthen the foundation of the woman you are becoming.
This is a registration only closed group, that runs for six consecutive weeks for two-hour sessions,. This is a psycho-educational and self-discovery group. The group aims to cultivate a safe space for women to learn, feel supported, share their stories, and raise self-awareness.
A brief pre-group screening session is required to make sure the group is a right fit for you. If it is, following that there will be an individual intake session to gather more information from you and prepare you for the group.
The group is facilitated by two passionate Registered Clinical Counsellors (see the bios) who actively work on their own personal growth and want to share their personal and professional wisdom to support the growth group members.
Weekly Group Topics:
