Our next session for 2019 will meet each week on Tuesday beginning Tuesday, October 1st, from 10 to 11:30am. Last class will meet on Tuesday the 17th of December. Previous groups have enjoyed a wonderful time of healing, sharing, laughing, crying and looking to the future. Our group is led by two experienced leaders who make it safe and confidential while giving you tools for coping and allowing room for you to grow while moving at your own pace. Let me know if you are interested. Use the form below or call 253-851-9991 to speak with Martha.
