A meeting space for caregivers of special needs children....


Caregiver Compassion

Caregivers of special needs children spend endless time, energy, patience and compassion caring for their special needs child, but often forget or have difficulty meeting their own needs. Join the Caregiver Compassion Support Group to dedicate one hour per week to see validation, support and compassion from others who may be able to understand the unique challenges that you experience.


You do not need to be a current client with Firefly Counseling Services to attend Caregiver Compassion, but the group may be used as an ancillary part of an individual or family treatment option.


The group is an open support group designed to adapt to the issues that members are experiencing in their daily lives. This group is largely discussion based with the following goals guiding each session:


  1. Development of healthy supportive relationships among group members
  2. Members will come to understand that while each member’s experience has unique challenges and aspects, there are others in the community who may face similar difficulties
  3. Healthy management of caregiving-related stressors and challenges
  4.  Members have the opportunity to learn about resources and effective strategies from other caregivers who may have had helpful experiences to share with the group.

Group Details:


Group will be held every Monday (with occasional exceptions) at 12:00-1:00pm

Facilitator: Sara Pitkanen, M.Ed. LMFT

Cost: $25 Per group session (or approximately $100 per month). Members must register for one month at a time. Please contact us directly if you have any concerns about payment and we are happy to discuss options available.


*Please note: While we understand the difficulties of finding childcare, this group and time is meant to offer parents a child-free space to attend to their own needs. We ask that participants utilize childcare to attend group and do not bring children to group.
