  • Mothers and Daughters: noon-1:30 p.m. Tuesdays, March 29-May 3. Is mom your worst critic or your best friend? Does mom interfere in your life too much? Is mom causing stress in your life? At the same time, do you miss being close to your mother and having a warmer relationship with her? This is a six session group to explore your relationship with your mother. Topics include separation-individuation, life passages, romantic relationships, habits we inherit and opening up lines of communication.
