Virtual Group Sessions
The format is simple. You ask your question and/or tell us what you need help with and we get you the information you need. Sometimes you might not even have a question or situation that needs to be addressed but we encourage you to at least listen in. Sometimes we learn the most from the questions or situations of others. We don’t know what we don’t know. These sessions are your safe place to ask whatever you want and/or need to know about. Your identity is kept anonymous and these sessions are not recorded. I encourage you to join us.
