Group Therapy

No In-person appointments are offered at this time. We are working toward TeleMental Health Services.

Here is a short video that will tell you a little about Group Therapy

 

Why Group Therapy?

  • You can get a sense that you are not alone
  • You can give and receive feedback that can help with change
  • You can try out new approaches of interacting with others in a supportive, confidential environment
  • You can increase your confidence in interacting with others
  • You can talk about difficulties with low self-esteem, or low self-worth
  • You can practice being assertive to get your needs met
  • You can learn new skills to help with issues of depression or anxiety
  • Because it works, research shows that Group Therapy is as effective as Individual Therapy
