Find connection, support and new friendships in a therapist-led Lilac Tree Support Group.

We offer groups for every stage of the process: contemplating divorce, in the process, life after divorce (post decree) and occasionally special topic groups such as Mothers & Daughters, Infidelity, Women Initiating Divorce, Baby Boomer Divorce.

Our 8-week or 6-week groups are led by Licensed Clinical Social Workers who offer a therapeutic, compassionate and supportive environment. Finding friendship and support from other women at the same stage of separation or divorce is empowering. Our groups serve to connect women who are facing similar challenges and provide a supportive, positive environment from which to learn and grow. All support groups take place in a safe non-judgmental environment where women share their experiences and learn from each other.

If you are interested in joining a group or want more information please contact Bobbie, our Program and Outreach Coordinator, at 847.328.0313 or by email at



Groups are limited to eight (8) women in a group and only begin when full.

All groups cost $35 per week.  Payment can be made using a payment plan over the length of group. Through our Scholarship Fund, partial fee assistance is also available if needed.

Since there are limited spaces in each group, pre-registration and a commitment payment are required to secure your space.  Contemplating groups, due to their length require payment in full before groups begin.

Please note: there are no refunds on commitment or group payments.

The group of friends that I have made is amazing...and seriously, we seem to mesh so well, that I can’t imagine that I’ve only known these women for 12 weeks or so. I can’t imagine my life without them in it anymore!
