Part of the agreement in participation is to keep the discussion and other participants confidential. So, group members can feel safe that their privacy is respected.

It’s very psychologically beneficial to be in such a supportive space, and it’s often empowering and inspiring in making positive life changes.

Here’s what support group participants had to say

“Absolutely would recommend, it’s truly valuable!”

“Jen is an incredible therapist and you will feel heard, understood and improvements to one’s self.”

“This was a special group to be a part of.”

“I’ve never felt so accepted by a group of people.”

“Jen led the group with confidence, empathy, compassion and really truly cares.”

“Safe place to be myself and not hide.”

“I like the structure of the group and how Jen led it with love and compassion.”

“I can just speak without censoring myself.”

“Jen brings important open discussions that we can truly identify with, and we bounced off each other as a group.”

“I looked forward to the group meetings”

“I felt comfortable in this group with link-minded peers. As I understand myself better, I can try to explain my thought and feeling to my family and others close to me.”

“I loved this group for lots of reasons, but mostly because I got to be MYSELF!”

“…here, I got to be accepted as I felt Iwanted to be: quiet, sad, crying,rebellious, or withdrawn. Thank you Jen”

“I was nervous about starting the group. I like the way it was structured, and it felt like a safe place.”

“I would recommend this group to others. Every week I looked forward to having this safe place to return to where I could share my truth and not worry about being misunderstood or judged.”

“This group helped me understand why I think and act in certain ways and how those ways differ from neurotypical people. I find that the more I can love and accept the way I am, the more comfortable I am in the world.”
