Lesbian therapy group forming in Vallejo

If my goal is sharing what's going on in/for the LGBT community in Napa and nearby...sometimes I feel a little bad in that, as a gay man, I'm not really in the right circles to keep full tabs on what to share about the other letters in queer soup. Lesbians, for instance. Luckily, you all keep me informed via the tipline, and so I have this helpful tidbit, a Lesbian therapy group is forming in Vallejo:
Lesbian Therapy Group forming in Vallejo
Topic: Relationships with Self and Others

This group is designed for lesbians to explore how we care for ourselves and those in our lives. Sometimes we don’t do such a good job at it; sometimes we do. Our own histories, stresses and emotions may get in the way. Group therapy is an effective means to learn about how we function in relationships by sharing with and hearing from other lesbians. The focus of the group is to:
  • identify what helps and what gets in the way of caring for ourselves and others
  • develop strategies to increase expressions of caring
  • develop strategies to reduce ineffective expressions
Important to note:
  • You do not have to be in a relationship to participate.
  • This group is not recommended for both partners of a couple to attend.
The group will meet twice a month for twelve 90-minute sessions with a $40 a session fee. There is an initial individual meeting to assess for admission to group at a cost of $50. Group meeting day and time to be announced.

For further information or to schedule an initial individual session contact:
Cathy Parker, PsyD
Licensed Psychologist, PSY 21556
Whatdya think about this group? Is there such a thing for local gay men? Transgender persons? Folks who are questioning? For those or any other tips about what's going on for the queer community(ies), please share.
