Group Therapy

Group therapy is a powerful tool for growth and change. Along with one or two clinicians, participants offer each other multiple perspectives, support, encouragement, and feedback in a safe and confidential environment. Research demonstrates that group therapy can be just as effective as individual therapy. For some clients, hearing from their peers may be more helpful than receiving guidance from a therapist since peers can identify with one another. Particularly for survivors of abuse or trauma, groups provide social support, improve social networks, and reduce stigma, isolation, and feelings of alienation among members. Group members are agents of change for each other; seeing others' progress can help participants realize they, too, can cope and feel better.

The following groups require screening before participation. Learn more about the following groups by reading the descriptions below. Please contact Abigail Gazvoda for additional information about enrolling in group services.
