The dissertation process can be challenging. Students struggle with
isolation, procrastination, time-management issues, feeling stuck, and
moments of low self-esteem. Some lack adequate support from advisors,
school, friends, or family. I offer a weekly support group for
graduate students who are in the dissertation phase of their academic
career. Learn to structure your time while getting support from
This group utilizes co-working and an email list to help extend
support beyond our weekly meetings. Group is open to graduate
students of all sexes, genders, and sexual orientations and is open to
up to 8 participants at a time.
All members have a free initial interview. I will also maintain a
waiting list in the event that the group is temporarily full.
