“Positive experience, full of learning, connecting with others, and healing.”
“I think she (Amanda) gave everyone comfort and hope.”
“I liked her facilitation, topics she chose to have us discuss, and she gave us good feedback.”
“I think Amanda does an amazing job facilitating a group around a very emotional and difficult topic. We have a varied bunch of women at varying places in their healing journey. She is able to offer feedback where appropriate, guide the group, provide a framework/structure to the conversation when it goes off on tangents and ensures everyone has the time to share.”
“Amanda is very warm , understanding and always has great information to share with us all!”
“I like Amanda and find her comments and recommendations to be pertinent and useful.”
“Amanda did a fantastic job guiding us through each session/check-in. She was able to provide both general information that spoke to us as a group as well as share her insights for us individually following our weekly check-ins. With such emotion flooding the room, her calm presence and thoughtful and sensitive ability to handle transitions allowed me to feel heard and respected the time for the others.”
Only people that have experienced this can truly understand what you are going through, which is the power of this Affair Group. This 6-week therapy group will help support and guide you through this confusing time, whether you will be staying in the relationship or not.
