Wednesdays, July 26, August 30 (at JSSA's new address: 3025 Hamaker Court, Suite 450, Fairfax)

Facilitated by Rita Evrony, LCSW, JSSA
Relocated to Northern Virginia recently or years ago? Love it, hate it, or just ok with it? Let’s talk about it! Moving to another state entails many changes — some for the better, some not. Loneliness, depression, and pining for your old surroundings and life may set in. Or, you may be thrilled with the new adventures ahead.

Let’s talk about your feelings regarding this stage of life in a friendly, warm, intimate setting. You’ll make new friends who are experiencing similar circumstances, and you’ll certainly realize that you are not alone in your feelings about your transition.
Fee: Free
RSVP: Space in this group is limited, you must RSVP to,  703.537.3095.
