One of our patients, Xandréa Sanford-Treistman, is offering a new group just for moms. She is the mother of a 20-month old, an MFTi, and the owner of Alternative Delectable Delights – Creating delights FREE of Gluten and Refined Sugars.
Starting April 6th, she’s beginning a Mama Drama group on Tuesday afternoons (1pm – 2:30pm) and evenings (5:30pm – 7pm).
- Are you tired of crying/ laughing to yourself about your experiences with motherhood?
- Do you wish you could record your life and have someone help you figure it all out?
- Are you seeking a creative outlet for your frustrations?
- Do you want to attend therapy but Not?
Then Mama Drama, a creative healing process, is for you.
Come join this group of Mamas and Mamas-to-be, as we work through all of our emotional, physical, mental and spiritual concerns. This is a group that allows us to speak (and be silent), while being heard and seen by our inner selves and our peers.
Using drama therapy techniques like role playing, improvisation and psychodrama we will work through issues of frustration, anger, depression, anxiety, self esteem, personal power, and tackle topics of mothering/parenting, developmental milestones, and personal and familial relationship issues
The cost of this group is $25/session. Discounts are available if you sign up for 4 weeks at a time. In an effort to create a safe space, it is important to have the group include the same attendees each week, whenever possible.
This group is Sans Enfant and childcare is available at the afternoon venue. There is a volunteer parent, formerly the owner of a daycare program, who is willing to offer support to care for our little ones while we express ourselves. If you have partners, friends, or family who can also help watch the children it will be helpful to be able to have this time to yourself, to bond, and to relate with other moms in a creative, safe space. Also, evening groups would be ideal if moms were able to recruit dads and partners to care for the children during group sessions, making it a bonding experience for them as well.
If any of the Partners/Men feel compelled to start a men’s group, please do. Your participation and responsibilities are also vast and are complex.
