You don't have to do life alone.
The Corral is a free, monthly support group that provides a nurturing space where individuals facing similar challenges come together to find strength in shared experiences. It’s more than just a support group though. It’s a gathering of individuals who want to use movement for well-being and connect with others who do the same.
Under the guidance of facilitators Jor-El Caraballo, LMHC, and Rachel Gersten, LMHC, LPCC of Viva, we come together to explore the significance of mental health in our lives. Together, we can prepare to confront life's challenges, empowered by the strength derived from the supportive community within The Corral.
Connection and Understanding
The Corral provides a unique opportunity to connect with fellow runners who may be navigating similar challenges. Sharing your story in a supportive environment breaks down the barriers of isolation.
Private & Judgement Free
The Corral is a private space where individuals can freely express themselves without fear of judgment. While we can’t ensure total confidentiality in a group format, we encourage group members to keep things shared within The Corral private amongst those who attended that meeting. This allows for trust and openness to flourish, creating a safe haven for emotional exploration.
Empowerment through Shared Experiences
Just as runners gather in a corral before a race, The Corral Support Group brings participants together to draw strength from their shared passion and experiences. It's a place where the collective spirit propels everyone forward.
Facilitated by Experts
Led by experienced professionals at Viva, our sessions ensure a safe and supportive environment for all participants.
Sessions are limited to ten individuals to keep ensure a structured, yet flexible platform for open discussion, reflection, and mutual support.
The Inspiration Behind "The Corral"
The name "The Corral" embodies the essence of preparation and gathering before embarking on a challenging endeavor. Just as runners gather in a corral before a race, our group is a place for individuals to gather, reflect, and then head back out into the world - strengthened, more resilient, and ready to face the challenges ahead.
In The Corral, every shared moment becomes a stride towards strength, understanding, and the transformative power of community. Lace up your metaphorical shoes and join us in The Corral.
