Authentic Connection

a therapy group for women

Feeling isolated, lonely, or disconnected?

Tired of the surface conversations that leave you feeling more alone?

Longing for more satisfying relationships,
the kind where you can be the real you and connect in meaningful ways?

You are not alone

(even if you feel like you are!)


Many women in our fast-paced, competitive, individualistic culture are craving deeper and more meaningful connections, but struggle with how to develop real, authentic relationships, the kind where you can be true to yourself, ask for what you want, and genuinely connect with others.

Since 2007, this therapy group has been providing a safe space for Bay Area women to come together, tell the truth about their lives, and grow into more authentic, empowered, and connected versions of themselves.




In this confidential and supportive therapy group for women, you will have the opportunity to cultivate mindfulness, self-compassion, and communication skills that support you in creating and sustaining satisfying relationships.

This group will help you:

  • Speak your truth + get support with whatever you're going through while witnessing and supporting others

  • Increase awareness of and express your feelings and needs as they arise in the moment

  • Learn to ask for what you want more confidently so you can get more of your needs met

  • Improve your listening and empathy skills

  • Get more comfortable with boundaries, assertiveness, and connecting across differences

  • Decrease isolation and experience more belonging

  • Experience what authentic and empowered connection feels like for you and get support to create more of it in your life!

“Genuine connections ease anxiety and help assuage our essential aloneness. They provide the secure base from which we can venture into scary places, celebrate our joys, and take risks, knowing someone is there to either cheer for us or catch us if we fall."

- Charlotte Kasl in If the Buddha Got Stuck
