Deb Horton Counseling

An LGBTQ-affirming therapist in Concord NH 

Teen & Parents groups will not meet in July. Starting in August 2019, we will meet the first Friday of each month.

There is plenty of parking at the rear entrance to the carriage house, where the group takes place. It is handicap accesible as well. Mindfulness Group takes place in a smallish room. There will be chairs for everyone to sit on, though if you'd prefer to bring a cushion, you can feel free to sit on the carpeted floor. After a short introduction and instruction, we will have a quiet meditation for approximately 20 minutes. Afterwards, there will be a brief dharma talk (inspiration/wisdom) followed by discussion.  I know it's hard to come to these groups, especially for the first time! If you have more questions about this group or what to expect, please reach out to me. [email protected]

It's helpful if you register prior to coming to any group.
