Group counseling can be a powerful and valuable venue for healing. Groups typically provide a teaching and/or processing environment for people who want a safe place in which to process life challenges. Group offers the unique opportunity to interact with both peers and therapists and a chance to both give to others and receive while experiencing personal growth.
Groups may be conducted for a set number of weeks or may be continuous with the population changing over time. They are sometimes homogeneous, meaning they are set up to deal with a particular topic such as sexual abuse recovery, or they may be general issues groups where each individual entering the group comes with a different goal. Both settings provide a rich opportunity to grow in different ways than may be experienced in individual therapy.
The fee for each group session is $50.00 for 90 minutes. This fee is reduced to $35.00 per session if you are in individual therapy at the time you attend group.
