When We Support Each Other Incredible Things Happen
Groups can be particularly helpful when children or adults feel alone with overwhelming emotions, think that no one will understand them, or struggle with their own social awkwardness. In the group environment, others serve as mirrors that can show us parts of ourselves we weren't fully aware of, show us that we aren't so different from our peers, and ultimately can help brainstorm ways of coping and changing behaviors when needed.
Groups are usually comprised of 4-6 people who meet weekly with a therapist. Sessions are $75 and run 60 minutes. The therapist provides structure and topics each week to help guide participants, and together create a safe space where feelings and experiences are shared.
