Group Therapy


Groups provide a safe environment in which you can experiment

with new behaviors, improve communication skills, and receive

feedback from others with similar concerns and interests. 



What Are The Benefits of Group Therapy? 
  • Group members experience emotional support, empathic understanding, and authentic encouragement from one another.

  • Committed attendance is itself therapeutic, as members "show up" for themselves and for others.

  • Individuals increase self-confidence through revealing their interior lives.

  • Group therapy is instrumental in healing all emotional and psychological struggles people experience: depression, anxiety, anger, fear, shame, etc.

  • Participants learn to accept support from others.

  • Members feel less alone in the world through understanding other people's lives.

  • Understanding other people's problems, goals, and solutions helps members clarify their own.

  • Attending group gives purpose to members' lives; we develop a sense of responsibility to the group because our participation impacts other group members.

  • And, we can experiment with different roles and ways of being in group that inform, change, and take root in our lives.

  • Group therapy provides opportunities to transcend our life struggles, as we experience them, in the moment. 


Research has documented group therapy's power in helping people with many types of issues.
