Group Counseling

Group approaches to personal growth are frequently the most effective way to explore and support changes you may wish to make in your life.

The nature of group work is to create a confidential, safe environment in which individuals experiment with getting and giving honest feedback & encouragement and exploring new behaviors and responses in a social context.

The objective of group therapy is to increase self awareness, increase social comfort, allow exploration of new behaviors, provide support, develop skills, and promote more genuine interactions with others.

In group therapy the work is accomplished by the individual, who in that context is identified as “working” on an issue, as well as the other group members as they witness the work and are impacted by similar themes in their own lives. This unique element of group therapy enriches the process for all members. Each time a person does therapeutic work it “sparks” therapeutic work and reflection for everyone in the group.
