How it works
Pace brings together small groups of 6-10 people to work on their mental and emotional health.
✨ Our approach is different
You may have heard of traditional peer support groups which offer a space for people to give and receive support from others going through the same thing. You may also know about group therapy for diagnosed conditions like addiction or depression.
Pace combines aspects of both—the power of peer support with expert facilitation by a licensed mental health clinician—to create an experience that you’re unlikely to find elsewhere.
❤️ Pace is for everyone
Pace is for people who are going through the typical challenges of life, but who may not need therapy or counseling right now. For people currently engaged in individual therapy, Pace can be complementary, a place to practice new skills and learnings.

🤔 What we ask of you
We ask members to commit to meeting weekly. 100% attendance is expected, but we know that life happens and you may need to miss a session or two.
Attending meetings on time and being fully present without distractions is the only requirement. There’s no homework or videos to watch between meetings.
📅 Your journey with Pace
Weeks 1-2: Intros and Norms
Your facilitator will establish group norms and guide you in building a sense of connection through getting to know each other exercises (not boring ice breakers, these are actually fun).
We may ask you to share:
  • A personal strength and weakness.
  • Highs and lows of your week.
  • A misconception people have about you.
Weeks 3-11: Personal Exploration and Growth
As a group, you'll explore each member’s feelings and thoughts and examine how they impact that member. Members start to explore new ways of thinking and being as a person and group member, with your facilitator as an encouraging guide.
We may ask you to share and explore:
  • How you define trust.
  • Your relationship with others.
  • Your values and how they do or don’t manifest in your life.
  • The hardest thing about being yourself.
  • The primary story that you tell yourself.
Weeks 12+
This is a time to reflect on the ways members have grown and changed, looking back at the lessons of these first three months. Many of our groups continue on together—most note they are just getting started at 12 weeks! Groups typically use this time to set goals and an intention for the future together.
We may ask you to share and explore:
  • What you appreciate the most about each other.
  • Your intentions for continued personal growth.
  • Goals for growing as a group.
