HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT...

“I FEEL LIKE CRYING ALL THE TIME.”


“I UNDERSTAND WHY SOME WOMEN SHAKE THEIR BABIES;

SOMETIMES MY OWN ANGER SCARES ME.”


“SOMETIMES I AM SO SLEEP DEPRIVED I AM NOT SURE IF I’M AWAKE OR DREAMING.”


“I’M OVERWHELMED JUST GETTING THE KIDS DRESSED.”

“I’M AFRAID OF LEAVING THE HOUSE, DRIVING THE CAR, AND EVEN BEING ALONE.”


“WHY DOES IT LOOK SO EASY FOR THOSE WOMEN ON PINTEREST?”


“I FEEL MOMMY GUILT, BUT SOMETIMES I HAVE TO LET MY OLDER CHILD WATCH MORE MICKEY BECAUSE I JUST CANT MUSTER THE ENERGY TO DO ANYTHING ELSE.”

“I COULD USE A GROUP OF SUPPORTIVE WOMEN TO MEET WITH, BUT I COULD ALSO USE A NAP!”

Who Can Join

These groups cater to women with a child under the age of 18 months old. (If your child is over 18 months, please consider joining our moms group.) It is ideal if you are able to find childcare for your baby so you will not be distracted, but if that is not possible, bring them along. (We’re all moms; We understand!) 

This is a great place to connect with other women and share your challenges, ask questions, learn about parenting and self care, cry, and laugh. These groups meet weekly and are facilitated by a professional counselor. The group offers support as all of the women are dealing with similar challenges. In addition the group incorporates education and therapeutic skills.

Group Goals

  • Be encouraged by women in the same boat
  • Learn Relaxation Skills
  • Improve Self-Care
  • Let go of unrealistic expectations
  • Get ideas to tackle some parenting challenges
  • Recognize when you need more help

We schedule groups as we have enough interested participants, so if this group appeals to you please submit your information below. This form indicates your interest in being contacted about the group, but does not commit you to participation.

We will contact you as soon as we have enough clients to form the next group and at that time if you are still interested we will give you more details and complete a phone intake. Your answers to the following may not limit you from participation, we just need to make sure that all clients are a good fit for the type of group and topics being addressed.

COVID-19  NOTICE

We at Threads of Hope Counseling care deeply for you, your families, and our community. As the concern regarding the spread of COVID-19 increases worldwide, Threads of Hope is prepared to reduce the spread of illness by following the expert guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and the Minnesota Department of Health. MDH continues to stress common-sense illness prevention strategies such as sanitizing surfaces, covering your cough and sneezes, and frequent hand washing.

If you are experiencing signs and symptoms of a viral respiratory infection including fever, cough, and shortness of breath or if you or someone you have been in contact with traveled internationally in the last 14 days, please DO NOT come to our office. Instead we are happy to offer you telemedicine (online video) services.

Telemedicine appointments are HIPAA secure, do not require any downloads, and can be accessed on any device with microphone and internet access. Ask your provider or the administrative staff if this is a service you’d like to pursue.

Additionally, there is a lot of misinformation being spread regarding this virus which has inspired significant anxiety in many in the community. Look here for ideas on how to reduce your fear while remaining wise in facing the uncertainty of this disease.
We are here for you and there is always hope.
