MID ATLANTIC ASSOCIATION FOR IMAGO & RELATIONSHIP THERAPISTS

Transformation Through Connection

Find a Group

Group therapy can be a powerful method of counseling. Groups provide a safe environment which encourages support of its members and personal and relationship growth. Some groups are structured around a theme. Other groups, with less structure, help members learn more about themselves and the way they interact. In couples’ groups, participants improve their relationships and support others in doing the same. 


In couples groups, participants learn the theory and practice of Imago therapy. They support each other as a community in their relationship growth.

Hayley Hoffman Women in the 3rd Chapter of Life A (wo)man's age is something impressive. It sums up her [sic] life: maturity reached slowly and against many obstacles, illnesses cured, griefs and despairs overcome, and unconscious risks taken; maturity formed through so many desires, hopes, regrets, forgotten things, loves. A (wo)man's age represents a fine cargo of experiences and memories. - Antoine de Saint-ExuperyWomen who identify as any or all of the following may be interested in a psychodynamic group therapy experience: An Empty nester, a Career changer, Over 50, Going through Menopause, Going through Perimenopause, Becoming a Grandparent, Single again, Single by choice, in a “December romance”, Considering retirement, Looking for passion, Embracing the changes, In a long term relationship or feeling generally discomfited due to changes in your body, your life situation or your options at this stage of life.

Hayley Hoffman Sexuality and Women in the 3rd Chapter of Life 10 week sessions focused on sexuality provide a platform for psycho-education, sexual education, personal growth, self-reflection and interpersonal exploration. These goals may prove to be merely the beginning of a journey the women in the group will take together. Commitment to the ongoing process, even when discussions feel challenging, awkward or invasive is an investment in self-knowledge. Through the confidential group experience, you will be encouraged to make changes in your sexual life, participate in exercises and discussions regarding your sexual concerns, your body, long-believed myths about female sexuality, aging and stereotypes. You will identify your sexual wants and needs and explore ways to achieve sexual self-awareness and satisfaction. You will learn safe, positive communication with a partner. You will explore your sexual identity past and present and the impact of aging on your sexuality. Sexual knowledge: fact versus fiction, relationship hopes and wants, and perceptions that prevent you from living as an authentically sexual woman in your later life will be explored in the safe confines of the group. During the group, you will learn ways to communicate with others, to identify your feelings and recognize behaviors that emerge. You will validate and empathize with group members while being seen and heard as your authentic self. Given time, grace and a willingness to be curious, the group will develop its identity.
