Group Counseling

Recognizing that being in the presence of others is vital to learning and growth, Sequence offers both traditional therapy groups and support groups. The distinguishing factor is the degree of focus on mental health issues, the background of the facilitator, and the coverage of fees by a health insurance provider. Sequence offers group therapy as an addition to individual therapy, or in some cases, as a stand-alone service. Group therapy is insurance reimbursable and offers a more complex and relational method of therapeutic support, enhancing the growth and development of participants in important ways that lead to long-lasting positive effects. Sequence also at times offers "support groups" which may be led by a member of our professional life coaching team and focus on issues such as stress management, wellness, career or other specific areas of concern.

To learn more or to register for a therapy group, please contact directly by email or phone the group therapist/facilitator listed. They are happy to discuss if this is the right option for you, and will suggest other resources if it is not.

Group Therapy fees are generally $80.00 per session, and are insurance reimbursable.



Journey Through Pregnancy, Birthing, & Postpartum

Join this intimate, in-person therapy group to share about your journey through pregnancy, birth, and post-partum experience! The first several sessions will be used to take a
deep dive and explore/reflect on your journey through pregnancy. We will use free writing and expressive art activities to help deepen our awareness and understanding of pregnancy, labor, delivery, and your transition into motherhood.

Then we will turn our attention to the postpartum experience and beyond...the chapter not as many
people talk about! Let’s tune into what is going on emotionally, physically, and spiritually - you deserve to spend time on you!

Seasons of Change: A Separation and Divorce Therapy Group for Women

This virtual, therapist-led group creates a safe and accepting environment for women where members can offer support and guidance to one another at whatever point along this journey they maybe.

Individual situations will certainly differ, but the need for community and a safe place to express emotions and develop coping skills is universal to anyone experiencing the life transition that comes with the end of the relationship. Grief and loss, anger and betrayal, guilt and worry, all of these emotions can become overwhelming, and this group provides the space to understand the emotional process of loss and change, process your emotions and find your way to a place of security, confidence, and hope for the future.

This 8-week group focuses on psycho-education, empathy, and compassion to support women who are going through the divorce process or are on the other side of divorce. The stages of grief and loss as applied to divorce and separation, transitions, family relationships, parenting/co-parenting struggles, and lifestyle changes are a few of the topics we will address. The group will be virtual for MD, NC, VA, and FL residents. Please contact the facilitator to schedule your free intake screening.
