Group therapy provides treatment in a format where there are typically 1-2 therapists and 3-8 participants with related problems. It is essential to be connected to people while you take the transformational journey through the challenges and issues of life, group therapy provides the community needed to experience emotional safety, while obtaining support, unconditional positive regard and understanding. It is also within the group that trust is learned as well as given. One also discovers that just as they receive from others within the group, they also give to others within the group.
We offer various types of groups and workgroups throughout the year to address a myriad of situations. To find out which groups are either forming or currently taking place, visit Upcoming Events, and/or see the bottom of the page.
