People with Parkinson's Disease and their Partners, Caregivers, Family and Friends
Hello to our wonderful Parkinson’s community!
We're thrilled to to offer VIRTUAL SUPPORT GROUPS through Coast Family!
What services are being offered?
Two support groups:
1) People with Parkinson’s: Tuesdays 1:30-2:30 PM on Zoom
2) Caregivers, Partners, Family and Friends of people with Parkinson’s: Thursdays 1:30-2:30 PM on Zoom
Who is running the groups?
Dr. Dana Lieberman (owner of Coast Family Psychological Services) and Dr. Kelsey Holiday are licensed clinical psychologists with a personal passion, and keen understanding of the unique challenges faced by people with Parkinson's Disease, and their families.
Why are there TWO separate groups?
People living with Parkinson’s Disease live through unique challenges. Caring for someone with Parkinson’s Disease has its own separate challenges. Having the chance to share your individual experiences and get support from other people in similar circumstances is invaluable.
How do I enroll in the groups?
It's easy! Just follow these 3 simple steps:
1) Send an e-mail to Dr. Dana Lieberman at email@example.com including:
WHICH GROUP YOU’RE JOINING (Identify whether you are a Person with Parkinson’s (“PWP”) or a Caregiver, Partner or Friend of someone with Parkinson's.
2) You will then receive an e-mail from “Coast Family Psychological Services” which will include instructions on how to complete the Online Consent Form, and input your payment information.
3) On the morning of each support group session, we will email a meeting reminder with the Zoom link.
What is the fee for support group services?
There will be a $65 virtual support group membership fee automatically charged to your credit card on the FIRST day of every month, which includes all weekly meetings throughout the month.
Frequently Asked Questions:
What if I know someone else who wants to join the group?
If you are planning to share our support group information with friends, please advise them to e-mail Dr. Dana (DrDana@CoastFamilyPsychologicalServices) with their name, phone number and group they are interested in, so that we can ensure they are properly enrolled.
How do I cancel my virtual support group membership?
To cancel your support group membership for any reason, please inform Dr. Dana Lieberman via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 PM on the 25th day of the current month to ensure you are not charged for the following month’s membership.
Who do I contact with my questions or concerns?
1.) For the quickest response, please email Dr. Dana at: email@example.com
2.) If email isn’t convenient for you, please call: (805) 507 7049. Our team will make every effort to return calls within 24 hours. Note: we do not provide 24- hour crisis services. In the event a group member is feeling unsafe, or requires immediate medical or psychiatric assistance, he/she should call 911, or go to the nearest emergency room.
What is the structure of the group?
During the first 10-15 minutes of group, we will follow up about some themes from last week's group if applicable or share a topic such as interesting research, and occasional guest speakers such as physicians, psychiatrists, or other psychologists, etc. Then we will take the remaining 45 minutes for group members to share something they’d like support with, share resources and experiences. The groups will be 60 minutes long.
What is the difference between a SUPPORT group and a THERAPY group?
Our SUPPORT groups will be a safe place to provide resources, share experiences and teach practical coping skills. This is not group therapy in the sense that we will not be processing the group dynamics, or providing formal therapy.
If a group member is in need of further psychological support, or is unable to attend the groups at the time provided, Dr. Kelsey Holiday provides consultations for individual/family/couples therapy. Please contact her for further information!

In the interest of privacy, and in order to maintain the group dynamic, our Zoom sessions will not be recorded.
