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 receive feedback, both from other members and the group leader, as interpersonal interactions 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 set up one or two meetings in which we’ll talk together about your hopes and goals for group, about any questions or concerns you might have about the prospect of entering into a group, and to help prepare you for the group experience, should you decide it’s right for you.
Wednesdays 10:30am – 11:50pm. Mixed gender, mixed age
Tuesdays, 4:30pm – 6:00pm. Clinical supervision group for psychotherapists
