New Fathers' Group
This group is not currently running, however if there is enough interest I will start it up again. Please contact me at the below number if you are interested to find out when the next group will be starting.
Fatherhood poses a great challenge to men and yet there are few supports available to them during this time. This ongoing support group for dads with kids under the age of 5 is small (generally 3-7). Dads can come to connect with other dads who are going through the same things and talk about the struggles they are having. Common difficulties that we talk about in the group include changes in self identity, lack of social interaction/feeling isolated, balancing work and family, changes in your marriage and sexual relationship, partners with postpartum depression or anxiety, etc. The group (limited to 7 dads) is ongoing and meets every other Saturday evening from 4:00-5:30. The cost of the group is $80 per month (2 groups/month). I ask for a 3-month commitment because it really helps with the continuity of the group. To enroll or if you would like more information on the group please call me at (503)957-8797 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in having me come and talk on any of these topics please contact me via email or call me at (503)957-8797.

Portland New Fathers' Group
Are you realizing that parenthood isn't quite what you expected? Need some tools to help get you through the rough spots? Wonder what's up with this baby, and your partner? This is the group for you. Come meet other new and soon-to-be dads in a casual environment where you can grab coffee and ask questions -- the real questions -- and get answers. I am a Dad and a counselor and I want to help make this whole parenting thing a little less mysterious and a little more fun for you. I offer this workshop once
per month at Cafe au Play on SE 55th and Division.
The workshop is 1 1/2 hours and is free. Please go
reminders about upcoming groups and connect with
other dads. You can also follow us on Facebook.
