7. How many people are in a typical group?  

Group sizes vary, but most consist of 4-6 persons per 75 minute session.  Due to the confidential and often intimate nature of group space, participation is limited to 7 group members and one facilitator per group session.   Appointments will show as available to book until the session is full. 

8.  What do you talk about?

This one is tough because the answer is: it depends.  Topics that come up frequently in this space include but aren’t limited to: processing how black/female identity affects our experience of the world, feeling like “the only one” or only one of a few in my professional or personal life, invisibility, trauma, black love, professional roadblocks, guilt and managing anxiety to name a few.  Oh.  And the “angry black woman”.  We talk about that too. 

9.  What is the cost and what is your refund/cancellation policy?

10.  I’d like to talk with someone, but I am only able to reach your voicemail.  What is the best way to reach you to receive a quick response?
