Group Therapy

programs-thumbnail

Group therapy can be especially beneficial for individuals who feel isolated, depressed, or anxious, or who are concerned about how they relate to other people. Even though some are nervous at first about joining group counseling, many soon discover that it is the best approach for their particular concerns. A number of counseling groups are offered each week.

Some groups may be ‘closed’ groups, so please contact the group facilitator before attending. Cost is $10 per session unless otherwise stated.
