Group Therapy


Group therapy provides an opportunity for interpersonal learning and emotional growth in a supportive environment. We are pleased to provide several adolescent and adult therapy groups for our clients.

Our adolescent groups provide support for teens who are struggling with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, family difficulties, peer problems, relationship issues, bullying, school adjustment, and life transitions.

We offer diverse adult groups that cover a wide range of topics such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, family conflict, anger, parenting, friendships, or life transitions. In addition, there are specialized groups available that target the development of specific skills as well as provide support from others with similar concerns.
