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, and life after divorce (post decree).

Our 8-week groups are led by Licensed Social Workers who offer a therapeutic, compassionate and supportive environment. Finding friendship and support from other people at the same stage of separation or divorce is empowering. Our groups serve to connect people 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 participants share their experiences and learn from each other.

Support groups are single gender and we welcome people who are transgender.

If you are interested in joining a group or want more information please contact us at 847.328.0313 or

We are currently collecting interest in forming Support Groups for women or men who are post-decree or self-representing (pro-se). Contact us if you are interested in being on a wait list.
