Fall 2023 Groups

The Immigration Learning Circle

The Immigration Learning Circle is a group to help facilitate space and support for students who have been impacted by immigration by way of their own or their families’ journey. This will include listening to one another, sharing stories, learning, processing, healing and celebrating together. This group is in collaboration with student diversity, equity and inclusion. Please contact Sophie Miller, LMHC to be screened into this group:

Healthy Relationships

The Healthy Relationship group is a community group designed for all individuals who are looking for a space to share, learn, and enter into conversations about all aspects of a relationship (i.e. boundaries, knowing yourself, what a healthy relationship looks like to you, sex, intimacy, communication). The goal of this group is to make it possible for individuals to engage in discussions about hopes, fears, and questions surrounding romantic relationships while learning about what a healthy relationship can look like. Facilitated by a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern, this group will meet every other Tuesday from 3-4:30 p.m. at Whitworth Counseling Services in Schumacher Hall. If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Williams at

This group meets every Thursday from 3-4 p.m. in the Schumacher Hall (Counseling Services) conference room.
