Group Therapy

Group Therapy is a process in which a small group of people (8 to 12) work with the therapist to talk about a specific issue with which all of them are struggling, such as grief, anger management, living with chronic depression or anxiety, etc.

With the direction of a therapist members share and explore feelings and behaviors, hear different points of view and coping strategies, and receive encouragement from others facing similar issues.

Group therapy provides a powerful opportunity to share and learn from others in a safe and supportive environment while working towards healing and change.
