Group Therapy for Individuals

Couples    Women's    Men's    Other

Group therapy can be a powerful method of counseling. Groups provide a safe environment which encourages support of its members and personal and relationship growth. Some groups are structured around a theme. Other groups, with less structure, help members learn more about themselves and the way they interact. In couples’ groups, participants improve their relationships and support others in doing the same. See below for the listings of each type of group or select the text link above.

Groups for Individuals

In the safe environment of group therapy, individuals, whether they are in relationship or single, learn more about themselves, their impact on others and ways to improve their relationship skills. Group therapy helps individuals to grow into wholeness, within the context of relationship.
