About this Event

New Series for Women Therapists

SIGN UP NOW FOR SPRING SERIES (facilitated by Marilyn Jones)

As mental health counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists or psychologists, we spend countless hours listening to the stories of others. We hold sacred space for them to do so. But who holds space for us?

The Heart of the Matter is a unique opportunity to join with other women therapists to give voice to our experiences openly and creatively within a safe and supportive environment.

Marilyn Jones, LMHC and certified facilitator for Women Writing for (a) Change Jacksonville, will facilitate these monthly circles. Consider taking some time in the new year just for you within a relaxed and comfortable community of other women who work from the heart.

  • Cost: $150 (Total cost for four sessions)
  • Registration: Register on Eventbrite

If you are in one of the professions listed above, come to this series to experience Women Writing for (a) Change's amazing process, used by thousands of women across the country since 1991, to express their authentic selves through writing and community-building. We'll use prompts, poetry, and prose to practice many different writing techniques useful in facilitating self-expression and personal growth. All levels of writers are welcome.

Women Writing for (a) Change® was founded in 1991 by Mary Pierce Brosmer, a practicing poet and former English teacher. She developed WWf(a)C to encourage women to find their voices, speak their truths, and tell their stories in a world in which they were often silenced. (womenwriting.org).

The Jacksonville-affiliated school was established in 2014 by Jennifer Wolfe, evolving into a non-profit in 2018, and adding three new faculty members in 2019-2020. Each newly certified faculty member is offering classes starting in 2020, expanding our outreach and accessibility to a larger, more diverse audience.

“A circle of women may be the most powerful force known to humanity. If you have one, embrace it. If you need one, seek it. If you find one, for the love of all that is good and holy, Dive in. Hold on. Love it up. Get naked. Let them see you. Let them hold you. Let your reluctant tears fall. Let yourself rise fierce and love great. You will be changed. The very fabric of your Being will be altered by this. If you allow it. Please, allow it.” — Jeanette LeBlanc
