Group psychotherapy is a unique framework of therapy in which a small number of people meet together under the guidance of a professionally trained therapist to help themselves and one another. All of us exist and have the ability to thrive in groups, either through our families, schools, organized activities, or in professional environments. These are the environments in which we grow and develop as human beings. Group psychotherapy is no different. It provides a place where you come together with others to share problems or concerns, to better understand your own situation, and to learn from and with each other.

Group therapy helps people learn about themselves and improve their interpersonal relationships. Group therapy addresses feelings of isolation and provides an opportunity for connection with others. Group therapy helps you find your voice by sharing your story. Group therapy allows you to relate to yourself and others in empowering ways. 

If you are considering group therapy, we invite you to explore your fears, goals, or motivations for wanting to join a group. Together, we will develop a better understanding of the benefits of group and how it can help you achieve your personal and relational goals.
