GROUP COUNSELING

Get out of your head!

Share your struggles with others and find support from people who are experiencing similar struggles. Group counseling can be powerful because you learn to share your pain with others. You also realized your not alone. Plus, if your budget is tight it is a great way to get help without spending as much as you would on individual counseling. 

 

Each group has a customized, therapeutic curriculum that incorporates evidence-based theories and practices. Our groups are "closed." "Closed groups" is a term for a group in which all participants begin and finish the group at the same time. The reason why we choose to lead "closed groups" is because we feel that much of what we discuss requires a certain amount of trust. We have realized that it is difficult to build trust among members if new members join in the middle of an already establised group. 

 

Most groups last 6-10 weeks. Most groups have a maximum of 10 people. 

 

What's the cost for group sessions? 

Many insurances are accepted. If we do not accept your insurance, then you pay the normal participant fee of $10 per group session. Most groups last 6-10 weeks, so you will probably not spend more than $60-$100 to participate in a particular group. If money is a concern, please contact us. We want to help you get the help you need, regardless of your financial situationo.
