Why be in a group?


Group Therapy can be a safe environment to experiment with alternative ways of treating yourself and others, while recognizing that you are not alone and that other individuals share similar problems and struggles.

Support & Feedback

An important benefit of Group Therapy is having a greater opportunity to give and receive feedback from other in a supportive environment.  Through shared experiences, emotional support and growth can be achieved.

Lower Fee

Group Therapy is typically less expensive than individual therapy. Lower cost can give opportunity for individuals to experience more frequency of sessions for greater overall growth and benefit.

Learn About Yourself

In Group Therapy, often times others serve as mirrors that reflect aspects of yourself that you can recognize and explicitly choose if you want to modify or change.  This can allow for the incorporation of many different points of view.


Increased Self-Awareness

Group Therapy can be a safe place to risk to learn more about yourself.  This can lead to greater development of self-awareness.  Modeling, a form of learning by observing and adapting other’s actions as your own, can allow you to give to others, as well as receive.



Growth often occurs in Group Therapy as a natural process of enhanced acceptance of self and others, increased honesty, stronger communication and socialization skills and better boundaries.  These are the things that self-esteem are made of.
