Group therapy is one of the most naturalistic and therapeutic opportunities for interpersonal learning and for deepening one's understanding of relationships. It acts as a unique representation in microcosm of the family, society, and civilization and therefore offers a chance to create change in oneself and in how one interacts with others that is unlike other therapy formats. It provides a corrective environment that is both an adventure of self-exploration and a possibility for profound understanding of oneself in relation to humanity. Group therapy can be a stimulating experience in combination with individual therapy, or it can stand on it's own as a unique and affordable alternative to one-on-one psychotherapy.
I offer group therapy in my practice because I strongly believe in the power of a group to further one’s healing, combat loneliness and isolation, and increase connection and belonging that is both meaningful and affordable.
*Practice Update ~ Process Group for Women Identified Folx will begin in 2020, please reach out if you are interested! I will begin scheduling initial appointments in January.
