The Journey

My Name Is LaFonya!

"One day, after one of my groups, I was sitting in my office, thinking about the healing that had just taken place. I have to say, I was proud on this day, for some reason. I experienced many successful groups before, but for some reason, this day made me realize I was engaging in some real healing moments. Initially, when I took on this position as the family therapist, there were not many families or loved ones participating in the program.

As I began to engage with them, more of them started participating
because I listened to their stories. Before they participated in the group,
I was able to identify behaviors they developed because of the addict.
Identifying behaviors such as lacking boundaries, trying to control the
addict, and not expressing their needs, wants, and desires encouraged
them to participate in the group. They felt heard and seen, just by
having a phone conversation.

Once the participation in the group started, they learned it was shared experiences and behaviors around the room. This made me realize more group discussions need to occur for loved ones to experience this same healing. Therefore, I decided to write this essential guide to reach more families by helping them to engage in the healing process."
