Group Therapy Services

Receive personal support and collective wisdom from group therapy - uncover meaningful solutions to tough issues with help from a professional therapist in a safe, confidential setting.

Building communities for like-minded individuals.

Group therapy involves a small group of individuals, usually 6-8, who come together to share their experiences and support each other. A licensed therapist facilitates the sessions, helping each person explore their thoughts and emotions in a safe and confidential space. Members of the group often form close bonds and benefit from hearing others' perspectives on similar issues.

The Benefits of Group Therapy

  1. Camaraderie. When dealing with a mental health issue, one of the greatest benefits of group therapy is understanding that you are not alone in your struggles. It can be easy to feel isolated and estranged from others while dealing with mental health issues, but when in a group setting, it is easy to realize that many people are going through similar issues. This common understanding fosters trust and eliminates judgment, while the act of sharing with others can bring relief to any feelings of distress.
  2. Different perspectives. With various backgrounds, personalities, and experiences, the group will present multiple viewpoints. These different perspectives can offer helpful strategies and techniques when it comes to your own situation. Additionally, many group members are in different stages of treatment, so they can provide advice and knowledge based on their own experiences.
  3. Accountability. While it may not sound like a positive thing, group therapy does create a sense of accountability. Members of the group provide constructive criticism and advice to help each other achieve goals. Rather than feeling judged or forced to do something, members will have a desire to please the group and make them proud.
  4. Confidence. The support of the group can be reassuring and helps build self-confidence. Knowing that even if you make mistakes, you have people to fall back on can be encouraging when pushing yourself to make changes.
  5. Self-discovery. Each person in the group will be able to help identify and bring attention to things you may have been unaware of or too blinded to see. Other perspectives may reveal things that need to be addressed and, through discussion, help provide new strategies to deal with these problems.
  6. Transitions. In-patient or partial in-patient treatments may rely heavily on group therapy. It is beneficial for out-patient group therapy to provide continued and accessible treatment after in-patient therapy is over.
  7. Confidentiality. Group therapy has similar requirements to individual therapy, including maintaining confidentiality outside of the group. To make everyone feel secure, group members can be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement, or use only first names or initials when sharing in the group.
