Questions about our Groups?

We get it - signing up for a new class or group can feel nerve-wracking, vulnerable, and just plain outside of your comfort zone. We’d love to give you some more information and answer any questions you need answered to feel as comfortable as possible. Don't hesitate to reach out! There's no question too silly or small. Call 724.454.9024 or email

All groups are held at Rooted Counseling’s office location in the Bailey Community Center.

If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.
