Women’s Divorce Support Groups
Oct 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
Separation and Divorce is a time of great transition. Everything changes in your life: your relationship, your living situation, your finances and perhaps your parenting arrangement. Most of all, your vision of what your life was going to be changes. Dreams are crushed. And the vision of what will be, becomes a canvas of “not knowing”.All of this change and state of “not knowing”, is stressful. A group is a place where you can safely process your thoughts and feelings and receive understanding and support. Dr. Suzanne Nixon, a licensed therapist for over 20 years, has worked with hundreds of people moving through divorce. She has been divorced for 20 years and understands the challenges of moving through this process. She offers her wisdom and compassionate support.

To oversee the development of the Trail, Barbara served on the Board of the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority (now NOVA Parks) for 11 years. Join us as Barbara, the “Mom of the W&OD Trail”, recounts how a good idea became the skinniest park in the NOVA Parks system, spurring a commuter alternative, economic development, and a connected community along its 45 miles. Still an advocate for the Trail, she shares what needs to be done to keep it thriving for years to come. Come enjoy this night of inspiration, learning and networking.

Women’s Divorce Support Groups Separation and Divorce is a time of great transition. Everything changes in your life: your relationship, your living situation, your finances and perhaps your parenting arrangement. Most of all, your vision of what your life was going to be changes. Dreams are crushed. And the vision of what will be, becomes a canvas of “not knowing”.All of this change and state of “not knowing”, is stressful. A group is a place where you can safely process your thoughts and feelings and receive understanding and support. Dr. Suzanne Nixon, a licensed therapist for over 20 years, has worked with hundreds of people moving through divorce. She has been divorced for 20 years and understands the challenges of moving through this process. She offers her wisdom and compassionate support.
