Group Therapy


small groups
Group psychotherapy, like individual psychotherapy, is intended to help people who would like to improve their ability to cope with difficulties and problems in their lives.  But, while in individual therapy, the client meets with only one person; the therapist.  In group therapy, the meeting is with a whole group and one therapist or possibly two therapists.  Group therapy focuses on interpersonal interactions, so relationship problems are addressed in the group as well.  Relationships in this instance can refer to personal, family, school, work, etc. 

If you would like to participate in one of our groups, please complete the group participation form.
