Support Groups:

Consider joining a Lilac Tree Support Group to help you with the emotions of divorce. Our 8-week or 4-week support groups are led by Licensed Clinical Social Workers who offer a therapeutic, compassionate and informational environment. Having professional therapeutic support and friendship from other women going through divorce at the same time as you is vital and empowering.

Groups are limited to eight women in a group. Since there are limited spaces in each support group, pre-registration with a Lilac Tree staff member and a commitment payment is required - $35 per week. Partial scholarships are available.




  • Groups begin regularly. Please call and talk with Bobbie, our Program Coordinator, for the information on the next group and how to register. 847.328.0313
