What is Group Therapy?
Group Therapy is a place where peers come together to support and challenge one another in a safe and honest environment. Often times, the group is working towards a common goal, or each individual is working towards a goal. Group members have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers and normalize what is going on in their lives.

What Does Group Therapy Look Like?
There are different types of group therapies, such as educational groups, processing groups, and support groups. All groups include at least 4 participants. Some groups are more structured, and some groups are more laissez faire, to allow for the participants to guide the group themselves. The point of being in a group is coming together to work towards a common goal, either individually or as a whole.
Why Choose Group Therapy?
For some people, individual therapy is all that is needed to meet a person's goals in therapy; however, for people with social anxiety, trauma, and other problems, having more than one person can be helpful. You become supported, while also helping and supporting another.
