Let's Work Together
Psychotherapy groups are usually organized around a particular issue. Examples would be process-oriented therapy groups, grief/loss support groups, substance abuse, parenting support groups or mastering anxiety. Group psychotherapy provides an additional level of support and intervention by bringing together people who are working to make changes in similar areas of life.
Group therapy helps people work through problems by interacting with a therapist and a group of individuals with similar struggles. In a safe, confidential setting, each group member can share personal experiences, feelings and issues and receive feedback and support from the rest of the group.
