“Mom Guilt” Detox Series

Facilitated by Erin McGinty Fort, MS, MHA, LPC-S, CEDS-S, and possible other Waco Moms

Join a smaller circle of other, like-minded Moms who want to cleanse themselves of “mom guilt.” This three-part series, facilitated by Thrive’s Executive Director and fellow mother-in-crime, will focus on the following topics:
Monday, June 6
7:15 – 8:30 p.m.
How Did We Get Here? Together, we will explore what contributes to toxic guilt as a parent, including (not limited to):
  • Systemic barriers and stressors that create more pressure than ever on mothers at work and at home
  • Our own expectations as parents, which are often exceedingly unrealistic
  • Unbalanced division of emotional, mental, and physical labor at home
  • And more!
Monday, June 20
7:15 – 8:30 p.m.
Getting Out of Our Own Ways and identifying how we get stuck in perpetuating our own toxic guilt.
Monday, July 11
7:15 – 8:30 p.m.
Asking for What We Need, including what to do when we ask and others aren’t as responsive as we might like. 
Each session is $35 per person; attendees must be able to attend two out of three to register. Sessions will meet in person and will include snacks that haven’t previously been licked, manhandled by small hands, or spit out.
To register, email Erin McGinty Fort at erin.mcgintyfort@thrivehere.com.

Mondays | 6:00 – 7:00 PM

This free support group welcomes parents, partners, and other caregivers of those struggling with eating disorders to connect with an understanding community in a safe and supportive space. With the guidance of a licensed professional counselor and certified eating disorder specialist, participants will gain valuable education and insight about how to support their loved one’s recovery.

This in-person offering is open to family members and caregivers supporting a loved one with an eating disorder. To inquire or join, please contact waco@thrivehere.com.

Our support groups are unique offerings designed to unite those with shared experiences and nurture healing through peer support and compassion. Participants are invited to engage in meaningful connection with an understanding community that can provide validation, empathy, and encouragement. Often, there are opportunities to explore additional resources available in the local community to foster further healing.

While guided by clinical experts, groups are not intended to serve as substitutes for therapy, psychiatry, or other clinical support systems. We encourage anyone who needs or desires dedicated support to contact our team at Thrive Wellness. Please reach out to waco@thrivehere.com or call (254) 327 – 1408.
