Know this: YOU ARE NOT ALONE. "Trauma" can be defined by any event(s) that have overwhelmed our ability to cope. It disconnects us from ourselves and our relationships. Healing from trauma IS POSSIBLE. This group meets online weekly for 8 weeks and is led by Wilcox Wellness Founder and Director Erica Wilcox, LPC. Erica is Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in womxn's trauma recovery. This group provides a confidential, safe and supportive space for womxn to join together no matter where they are are in their healing journey.

Each participant will meet for a personal consultation with Erica prior to the group to ensure that their unique needs are met.
