Therapy Group

Untitled design (2).png

Group Description:

This therapeutic group is designed for individuals who have experienced trauma or distress related to religious beliefs, practices, or communities. Our aim is to provide a safe and supportive environment where participants can share their experiences, learn coping strategies, and embark on a journey of healing and self-discovery.

Who Can Attend?

This group is specifically designed for adults aged 18 and above seeking support and guidance in recovering from religious trauma. Participation in this group is open to individuals seeking healing and understanding from past religious experiences. It is intended for individual participation to foster a safe and inclusive space for personal growth and recovery from religious trauma. We aim to provide a supportive environment for individuals navigating their own journey toward healing from religious trauma. 

Expectations for Participants:

Our group therapy sessions operate as a closed group, which means that once the sessions commence, we do not accept new members. Participants are expected to commit to attending all six sessions from start to finish. Consistent attendance throughout the entire duration of the program is vital for the group's cohesion, trust-building, and effectiveness in achieving therapeutic goals. Please note that due to the closed nature of the group, no new members will be added after the initial sessions begin.


This group meets every Monday from 6:00 - 7:30pm
Starting February 5th 


This hybrid group meets in person at the A New Hope Therapy Center office and via Zoom for those around the state.


We are happy to bill your insurance if we are paneled with them. Our self pay rate is $25 per session.

Zac Egan, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with my graduate degree from Western New Mexico University. While there, my focus was on clinical social work and I received a certificate in school social work. My passion in therapy is using unconventional interventions – such as video games, anime, movies, tabletop role playing games (such as Dungeons & Dragons), and board games – alongside conventional intervention techniques. My primary therapeutic orientation is towards mindfulness, however I also include elements of CBT, DBT, ACT, Jungian, and IFS. I am also EMDR trained and working on both my EMDR and Play Therapy certifications. The populations that I have the most experience working with include teenagers and adults in both group and individual settings. I aim to provide a holistic and humanistic service to my clients utilizing an integrative therapeutic approach.
