The NortheasternSociety for Group Psychotherapy Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of several scholarships in honor of Michelle McGrath, LICSW.  

Michelle was a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who died peacefully on June 14, 2018 from brain cancer. She was 57 years old, a dear friend and colleague to many. She will be deeply missed. Prior to her death, Michelle had a thriving private practice in Arlington, Massachusetts. She was a beloved clinician and supervisor who had special expertise working with couples and the LGBTQ community.   

Michelle was an active and vibrant member of the Northeastern Society for Group Psychotherapy for many years. She completed the NSGP Training Program and was Co-Chair of the NSGP Membership Committee, an NSGP Board member and a member of the Executive Committee of the Board. She regularly attended the NSGP annual conference and often enthusiastically volunteered to be a participant in demonstration groups, providing others with the rare opportunity to see how groups can be powerful agents for healing and connection. 

The opportunity to attend group therapy training at NSGP offers a truly extraordinary learning experience. These awards will be given to clinicians who demonstrate a passion for group work and the potential for leadership. They are intended to provide significant financial assistance so that group therapy training is possible. Scholarships may be used for the NSGP Annual Conference at Simmons College June 7-9, 2019 or for The NSGP Training Program.

For more information regarding both of these events, see Special consideration will be given to those clinicians who are working with the LGBTQ community.

Scholarships may be used to fund all or part of the three day NSGP conference in June, 2019. To apply, please provide the information requested below, respond to the questions and then email your responses to: Oona Metz, LICSW, CGP, FAGPA at

Please include MCGRATH SCHOLARSHIP in the subject line of the email.
