(All groups are weekly, mixed gender and 80 minutes each)
Please contact me for information on current groups.
Group Therapy, also known as Group Process, is a powerful way to explore how and why we feel the ways we do about ourselves and others when we interact with people in relationships. Group Therapy is unique, because the members of a group are committed to consciously deepening their understanding of both themselves and of others. It’s a place where members can talk about concerns that are on their minds, as well as investigate interpersonal difficulties in a safe place. Members experience emotionally meaningful interactions with both other members and the group leader, as interpersonal exchanges unfold in real time.
Therapy groups meet once a week for 80 minutes and are ongoing with no specific end date. This format gives members the opportunity to gradually explore and heal some of the most difficult feelings like shame, fear and distrust of relationship. These kinds of feelings are often more activated in groups, and therefore more readily worked with experientially. In many cases, having both individual therapy and group process conjointly is the ideal therapeutic combination.
As group therapy leader (CGP) I draw on my advanced training in psychotherapy and group process to assist members and the group as a whole to be a productive working unit from which everyone benefits.
If you are interested in joining a therapy group, please contact me. We will meet individually several times before you enter a group. These meetings give us the chance to get to know one another, as well as to talk together about your hopes and goals for group, explore any questions or concerns you might have about the prospect of entering into a group, and prepare you for the group experience, should you decide it’s right for you.
