Our group therapy program is unique in that we encourage our clients to continue working with their outside therapists when enrolled in our groups. We will collaborate weekly with your therapist to create a cohesive Treatment Team that focuses on comprehensive, high-quality care.
In group therapy, clients gain support and understanding from others with similar experiences. It also offers the opportunity to learn to express and tolerate difficult emotions in a safe and nurturing environment. Group therapy is particularly helpful for teens who feel isolated or alone.
This fall, we are pleased to offer the following group experiences.
