Bethesda Groups Start Next Week: Moms-Only & First-Time Moms with Babies

Filed Under:

Starting next Thursday, October 19 in Bethesda: New sessions of professionally-facilitated support groups for local moms at Counseling Associates of Metropolitan Washington - led by therapists (and and mothers!) Nancy Markoe, LCSW-C and Deborah Horan, LCSW-C.

Here's more detail on each group:

Moms-Only Group: Offers the opportunity to address the issues confronted by mothers of babies and preschoolers. Offered in the evening to allow mothers working both inside and outside the home to attend, this group helps mothers deal with the challenges they face as their children grow. This group will look at changing relationships, family dynamics, sibling issues, childcare and balancing outside work with motherhood. Join other mothers in a safe and supportive environment. The group meets Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

First Time Moms with Babies: Daytime sessions are offered for new mothers with their infants up to 6 months (if they choose to bring them). These sessions address the same issues and concerns as the Moms-Only group, with an added emphasis on practical parenting. Meet other women facing the challenges of new motherhood who wish to discuss their concerns and feelings in a safe and supportive environment. This group meets Thursdays from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

The group meets for 10 sessions at their office, 4833 Bethesda Ave., Suite 204. The office is metro-accessible and there is adjacent metered parking. The registration cost of $260 is payable in advance, or at the first session.

For more info or to register, contact Nancy at 202.494.6840 or Deborah at 301.325.3052.
