The Sister Circle: A Unique Service for Women

Jan 04, 2014 04:33AM

A free-flowing group discussion led by Dr. Theresa Ford is held monthly, so that any woman desiring to connect with other women and share experiences can participate. The Sister Circle meets for 90 minutes on the third Thursday of each month, at Seekers Church in Northwest, Washington, D.C., near the Takoma Metro. The cost to participate in the Sister Circle is only $20, and the group is diverse with regards to age and ethnicity. Some women later decide they would like more regular contact and elect to participate in a weekly support group.

Women have unique experiences and need a safe space for emotional healing that is staffed with competent and compassionate professionals dedicated to them. In such a space, women can raise concerns, air grievances and fearlessly examine the experiences, attitudes and behaviors that have led to their present unsatisfying condition. With the necessary support, women can also meet goals and create a more desirable future. The growth and development of a woman often positively impacts those around her, including family, friends and community members. Since women are naturally relational, being in the company of others, who are similarly striving for personal growth, is particularly helpful.

Ford is the director of Creative Counseling and Coaching Services (CCCS) and is a licensed psychotherapist, as well as an educator, researcher, life coach, award-winning workshop leader and internationally published writer. With more than thirty years of experience as a clinician and administrator, Ford's expertise includes addictions, mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, co-occurring disorders, eating problems, recovering from trauma, self-esteem issues and life transitions.
