Loneliness and Social Isolation

Facilitated by Heather Baker, LMSW

A weekly, online group, Via a secure, Live Video Platform.
Wednesdays 7.45pm.

Are you feeling isolated? You are not alone! Social Isolation can cause loneliness, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and is linked to a decrease in life expectancy. In a post-pandemic world, our lives have become more isolated. More of us are working from home. We buy our groceries on-line. Some are still feeling anxious about being in public again.

This group will seek to combat the depression and anxiety of social isolation by creating a community for group members to get to know each other, share their interests, and develop strategies to assist them in stepping out of their comfort zones and engaging in new aspects of life.

  • Topics include the difference between social isolation and loneliness.
  • How are you impacted by social isolation and loneliness?
  • What would take you out of your comfort zone?
  • What stops you from leaving your comfort zone?

I believe in creating a safe environment for all of the people I serve. You and I will become a team, working together to help you achieve your mental health goals. We will work to discover the strengths you already possess and learn how to apply them to your life.
My strength is working with members of the LGBTQ+ community and those who are questioning. You will find me to be affirming, understanding, and knowledgeable of the issues impacting your community. Whether you are part of this community, or any other, our sessions will be supportive and free of judgment. I completed my undergrad at Allegheny College and earned my MSW in Social Work at Nazareth College.
