Community Support Services has begun hosting the Women’s Roundtable, a safe, confidential women’s support group in Port Clinton. The purpose of the program is to provide women a resource for learning, sharing and a sense of community.
Meetings are held on Wednesdays from 6-7 p.m. in the large conference room at the Sutton Center, said Barb Phillabaum, Family Development Coordinatore at Community Support Services. Everyone is invited to join the support group, and topics discussed allow for connecting, bonding and healing.
The group will periodically invite guest speakers to share their expertise. The inaugural guest speaker is Kimberly Brown, a dedicated Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor who brings compassion and kindness to her therapeutic process.
Brown is a native of Port Clinton with an extensive partnership with Community Support Services over the years. She received a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Ashland University, a Masters of Science in Criminal Justice from the University of Cincinnati, and currently works at Community Health Services in Fremont as a Chemical Dependency Counselor.
Brown will begin her series on Wednesday, July 14 with an extensive list of topics, ranging from Identifying and Understanding Addictive Patterns; Co-dependency, Substance and Process Addiction Issues; Family of Origin Issues; Relationship Issues; Setting Boundaries and Limits; Emotional Awareness/Feelings Identification; Communication; Self-Esteem; Sexuality and Related Issues; and Health and Wellness.
