Discover your healing wisdom, strength and serenity as you confront unhealthy patterns in your relationships. Problems and crises offer invitations to personal or relational growth. We explore strategies for moving forward, whether that means feeling empowered to make changes, or accepting life on life's terms. Learn to respond to difficult situations non-reactively, with curiosity, detachment and compassion. Develop skillful communication which enables you to negotiate healthy boundaries and effectively resolve conflicts. Begin speaking your truth, expecting to be heard. Believe that you deserve to be treated well, with kindness. Learn simple, daily skills which promote happiness and contentment.
I have been facilitating change and growth in individuals, couples and families for 40 years. I integrate Dr. Carnes' Task Centered Model for Tx of Sex Addiction, mindfulness-based Hakomi, Internal Family Systems, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, EMDR, Transpersonal psychotherapies and 12 Step recovery principles to create a wholistic approach to healing.
I focus on empowering women who are involved in codependent, destructive relationships with men or women (partner or family member) who are absent or abusive due to addiction, sexual compulsivity, mental illness, anger or emotional immaturity. Learn to set boundaries from a place of strength and resilience. Saturday appointments.

Laura Lucas-Silvis's Groups

Support Group for Partners of Sex Addicts

In addition to addressing emotional disruption, we develop body awareness to regulate uncomfortable physical sensations . We practice methods to create a felt sense of calm, detachment, strength, and comfort. Focus is on restoring a positive sense of being present in one's body and mind. Activities are designed to develop mindful attunement to oneself and intimate connections with others. We practice mindfulness, physiological regulation, somatic resourcing, and meditation in addition to psychoeducation, grief work, and boundaries experiments. For those who have focused on emotional processing in counseling, the group will deepen healing with interventions focused on trauma in the body.
