Timeframe: This is an open group which will continue indefinitely as long as there are 3 or more active members. Members graduate from the group when they feel they have made satisfactory progress toward their self-defined goals. New members will be accepted whenever total membership falls below 11.
Membership Requirements: The FOOP Group is open to anyone hoping to explore and alleviate the effects of a difficult childhood on present day relationships, thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors.

A free, 45-minute pre-group consultation is required to assess mutual fit between potential members and the group.
Joining the Group
If you are interested in joining the FOOP Group, call/text me at 512-806-0137 or fill out the form below. I will contact you as soon as possible to schedule a free, 45-minute pre-group consultation. If the group is currently full, I will offer to place you on a waiting list. Scheduling a pre-group consultation is not a commitment to join the group. The pre-group consultation is a structured, informal, one-on-one meeting where we will discuss:
At the end of the consultation, if we both feel that the group is a good fit for you, you will sign a group agreement and determine your start date.
I sincerely look forward to seeing you in group!
