Group therapy is one of the most effective therapeutic techniques for treating a number of psychological struggles people experience, including depression, anxiety, anger, and grief. Therapeutic groups will consist of five to 8 people who reveal their interior lives to others under the direction of a therapist. Participants typically commit to attending weekly group sessions for an hour and a half each. Group therapy allows participants to observe others in the group, receive valuable feedback, and benefit from social interactions. Group therapy has the major goal of helping individuals transcend their mental health struggles through experiencing their common humanness with others fighting the same battles. Benefits of group therapy are virtually endless by cultivating a community of trust, compassion, respect, and honesty in which participants can grow. See below for current groups being offered.
