What is support group?

Meeting one hour per week for 12 weeks online or in person, the Tides Community Support Group is led by a counseling professional who provides insight and guidance. Together, participants may share their common experiences and concerns to support each other with encouragement, comfort, and advice.

What is group therapy?

Tides Community Group Therapy is a meeting of one hour per week for 8 weeks online or in person with curriculum-based mental health therapy provided by a counseling professional to grow peace of mind. The counseling professional leading the group will guide participants through customizable exercises and worksheets just as one would in 1:1 therapy. Meeting with others in the community, participants are reminded they are not alone. Others in similar circumstances can learn and support through sharing experiences and progress over time.

What are the perks?

  • Exchange ideas, stories, and support in a private online discussion board with other workshop members between meeting times.

  • Grow your peace with interactive quizlets and reflections to track your growth.

  • All participants have unlimited access to curriculum material to revisit independently between group sessions.

  • Unlimited access to bonus material (audio/video) to help keep participants encouraged every single week.

Community Partnership

Tides Community programs were developed in partnership with Trident Area Agency on Aging to meet the needs of our community with our best practices.

It is the mission of Tides Therapy and Consulting, LLC to help all people create possibilities by embracing life changes. 

This is a holistic approach that includes community partnerships to meet the unique needs of our community.

It is the mission of Trident Area Agency on Aging to promote and support the health and wellness of current and future generations of older adults in our communities. We focus on the overall well-being of these older citizens so that they may enjoy lives of dignity, confidence, and personal and family fulfillment.

Amber Fender, LISW-CP/S, owner of Tides Therapy and Consulting, LLC and prior public health social worker, created the groups curriculum. The material design comes from years of experiences working in hospice, having a child with special needs, and 1:1 therapy with the most effective interventions from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy interventions. This community program is created to acknowledge the past and present while focusing on a growth mindset. Take a look below at further details of what to expect:
