Women’s Divorce Support Group in Simpsonville
Beginning June 2019
You never thought you’d end up here.
Suddenly, you find yourself crying out of nowhere when a memory hits you. Or replaying conversations and moments in your head, wondering where you went wrong.
Or maybe you’re relieved it’s finally over, which then leads you to start feeling guilty.
You’re not really sure where to turn for help. Maybe you’ve considered talking to someone at your church, but the stigma of divorce is so palpable that you fear being judged or pressured to “work things out.”
You wonder how your divorce is going to impact your children. You don’t want them to be caught in the middle, but you know they already are in so many ways.
You feel like you’re on this constant emotional rollercoaster and you can’t get off. Sometimes you feel so angry that you scare yourself. Other times, you just feel empty. Some of your divorced friends or coworkers have tried to reassure you that it will get better, but you’re not sure you believe them.
You know that plenty of people have gone through divorce before you, but you still feel so alone.
“Lost in Limbo” is a support group for women going through separation and divorce.
Together, we navigate the emotional ups and downs that often come with this scary journey. You’ll also find hope, friendship, and understanding in a small group setting of other women who are also in the trenches with you.
Oh yeah, we have fun too.

Lost in Limbo is a place for you to come as you are and receive the support you need in a private and comfortable space. We discuss common challenges women face during separation and divorce as well as ways that you can take care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs as you continue through this difficult process. We sometimes do a relevant book study (currently we’re knee-deep in Brene Brown’s “Braving the Wilderness,” which is the perfect read for any woman going through a divorce), and we also share any helpful blogs, podcasts, or other resources with each other.
This is an open-ended group and has no definite end date. We began in June 2019 and it will continue to be offered. If you’re interested or have questions, simply fill out the interest form on the bottom of this page. We’d love to have you join us.
I know attending a support group for the first time can be intimidating, especially with such a sensitive topic. In order to create a safe space for group members, this group is only open to those who are in the process of separation and divorce. If you have a friend who is also going through the divorce process, please have her complete the interest form below and I will reach out to her individually.
You do not need to be in therapy in order to participate in group. If you already have a therapist, you’re encouraged to continue seeing them regularly. Group is meant to supplement any therapy you are already receiving, but it is not a replacement for therapy. I may also encourage you to seek individual counseling if I feel that it would be beneficial, but you are not required to attend therapy in order to enroll in the group.
I do ask that you make regular group attendance a priority in order to improve the solidarity of the group. However, I also know that last-minute things come up or that you may have a prior commitment during a group meeting. If you are unable to attend a group, please let me know as soon as possible. You are not required to attend every group, but I’m confident that once you get to know the other group members, you won’t want to miss it!
Dealing with separation and divorce is hard enough as, but living below what we lovingly refer to as “The Bible Belt” can make it that much harder. There’s often so much pressure to stay in an unhealthy marriage, whether that pressure comes from family, friends, or your church. This group is respectful of all backgrounds and religious beliefs, and we will only discuss how your faith (or lack of faith) has been impacted if that is something you wish to discuss. To that end, this is not a religious group, and we will not be using any religious materials as the basis for our discussions.
Unfortunately, support groups are not a covered benefit under insurance plans; therefore, all groups must be paid privately. I do offer a discount for those who pay monthly as opposed to paying per group meeting.
