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, we offer a diverse array of groups throughout the year that are focused on personal growthskill development and peer support.

Prospective group members are required to attend a pre-group information session. This is a brief meeting with the group leader before group begins that provides information about the group, and helps determine if the group is a good fit for your needs. If you are interested in a group, please contact our Office Manager at 315-859-4340.
