Group Therapy

Group therapy is a powerful treatment that allows people to connect deeply with themselves and with others. As one of the most effective treatments for a variety of concerns, it is frequently our recommendation for students who come in for an intake. Groups take place throughout the year. Some are open to everyone, and some require a preliminary screening before you can join, and you may have to wait for an opening. Group titles and times below are for Spring of 2016. 

If you are interested in a group, please contact our Office Coordinator at 315-859-4340.
