Overcoming Social Isolation - A Group for Adults Age 55+

Do you feel isolated? Do you desire to be more connected to others?

To feel happy and good about ourselves, we need real human contact. Social isolation can bring depression and suicidal thoughts.

I am offering a group for people 55 and older who want to improve their social connected-ness.

The group will give participants a place to:

  • Build friendships
  • Become more confident
  • Give and receive feedback
  • Experience relational connection
  • Talk about whatever is on their mind

The group meets two (to three) Thursday afternoons a month, from 2 to 3:30, at my home office in Germantown. It costs $60.00 a session, to be paid monthly.
