Group Therapy

Group Therapy Counseling Psychotherapy & TherapyGroup therapy is another form of psychotherapy that takes place in a group setting with from four to eight people. Group therapy sessions usually run longer than individual sessions to give members more time to participate. The group helps you to more fully understand not just yourself, but also the others.

The group process provides great benefits for the members as they learn to communicate more deeply and openly with each other in ways that may be very new. Over time, the closeness of the group often enables the members to take greater emotional risks in a safe, supportive environment. It is often in these encounters with the other members, that you learn to present and resolve difficulties with people in your life such as co-workers, neighbors, friends, or relatives.

Sometimes, either as an adjunct to psychotherapy to help move the process along, or after you’ve completed psychotherapy, a group is appropriate. The group therapy sessions help you practice those processes that work for you. I offer groups for men and women.
