"Goddess by Design" Women's Group

Been feeling your inner GODDESS lately? Joining like-minded sisters may help…women are strongest in the collective when we bond and share with one another. Support groups that help regain self-esteem, authenticity, safety in vulnerability, and bonding with other women can really help to deal with everyday stressors. This support group is a place for women (including trans women!) to explore their problems, issues, and address everyday struggles with depression and anxiety the way they may manifest for women specifically.
