Adoptive Parent Group - Thursday nights 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Presented by Rachel Fishman, MA LAPC, NCC, TBRI® Trained

Adoptive parent groups are for adoptive mothers, fathers, and other adoptee caretakers who would like to meet, encourage, and be encouraged by other adoptive parents. Adoptive parent groups provide a unique opportunity to connect with local adoptive families, experience emotional and spiritual growth by way of the group dynamic, and learn from the experiences and viewpoints of others. Additionally, adoptive parents can receive helpful and up to date information on adoption-specific topics as well as referrals to other services.  Please visit Rachel Fishman’s bio on the staff page to learn more about the group leader. Please call or email Rachel prior to attending or with any questions you may have. (678-534-3824 x113 or  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Wounded Heart Group – Victims of Sexual Abuse

photo_woundedheartThis group is for survivors of sexual abuse and in some cases rape victims. Women who have been through these types of trauma often feel like they are the only ones who:

  • Find all men repulsive
  • Are very promiscuous in their relationships
  • Continually find themselves in relationships with other abusers
  • Have high degrees of anger which often are directed at those they love
  • Find intimacy in marriage very frightening and dissatisfying

If you have ever had some of these thoughts, then this group will convince you that you are not alone and that it does not have to be this way forever. During the sixteen weeks this group meets we will deal with issues that are related to your present condition, and your experiences of the past and the things that you will need to work through to get better.

Each group meets for an hour and a half. A commitment to attend and pay for all sixteen weeks ($40 per week) is required. For more information contact Betsy Bowers at 678.534.3824 x 114.
