Session discussions are structured around participants’ needs and peer/community support, and facilitated by Kate Viernes, LCSW #80753. This is a peer-support group, not group therapy. In response to winter viruses and our desire to keep the community safe, masking of adults is required. Our group seeks to answer questions such as: What IS a Filipinx mom? What are the challenges we face as Filipinx moms? How can being Filipinx inform our healing as new moms as well as the healing of our children, ancestors, and community? Am I really as alone as I feel?? (spoiler alert: you’re not, sis!) Babies and children are welcome to join.

Interpreting Ina:
