Compassionate Connections Group

During this time of increased distance, stress, and uncertainty, women deserve the support, tools, and unity offered through our transformative therapeutic group.

Co-therapists, Diane Geiser, LCSW, and Chelsea Laliberté Barnes, LSW, will walk alongside women on their unique growth journeys while fostering a community of mutual trust, respect, and acceptance.

Our mantra:

We meet group members where they are at, not where others want them to be.

We pull from the collective strengths and challenges of group members to identify specific therapeutic strategies, helping you to:

  • support your inner “little girl” whenever and however she shows up;
  • identify and process wounds and traumas;
  • address family, work, social, and other relational challenges;
  • develop self-care coping skills;
  • strengthen connections and communication methods;

This online group will be held weekly, for 6 weeks, on Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 PM beginning Thursday, March 11, 2021 via Zoom.

For questions and to schedule a pre-screening, contact Chelsea at or 847-438-4222 x35.

The total group cost per month is $185. We accept cash or check and can provide a statement for you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. If the cost is a challenge for you, please let us know and we can work out a sliding scale fee.
