Takoma Therapy Director, Simone Jacobs, created the 'Women of Color' group, with a colleague, in 2013, seeking to create a space to explore the issues of race, gender, and intergenerational trauma. Through the use of education and art, the group has been transformative in the lives of the women who have participated, sharing their thoughts, feelings, hurts, desires and connections.
Please contact Simone Jacobs if you have questions or are interested in participating in future groups.
Note: A new group is in the planning stages for 2020.
