Why Group Therapy?
Group therapy is unique in that it can provide a safe setting in which you can come together with other people hungry for healing, share, validate, and listen to one another’s experiences... and even find your "voice." This window of opportunity promotes healthy intimacy, a supportive environment, and can be a powerful learning and healing experience. When people listen to each other and are willing to share vulnerably, they discover that they are not the only ones affected by various emotional struggles, patterns, thought distortions, and behaviors.
A group process is a great way to broaden our perspectives and take a new fresh look at our lives. In past groups, I have seen individuals break free of unhealthy strongholds, powerlessness, isolation, and build deep lasting friendships with others who have shared their journey. Some choose to do both group therapy and concurrent individual therapy to deepen their experience of healing and exploration.
Please let me know if you have any questions about these treatment options or if you would like to set up an appointment or free phone consultation. I would be happy to further discuss either of these therapy groups and whether they would be the right timing and fit to best meet your needs.
Generally speaking, special considerations for timing/fit would be that an individual has enough stability, awareness/insight and safety to effectively participate and benefit from an outpatient group process. For example, if an individual currently struggles with active suicidial ideation/self-harming behavior, acute self-medicating behavior (alcohol, drugs), active psychosis, or is going through difficult legal, life transition or crisis matters, it would not be the appropriate timing or fit for these particular outpatient therapy groups. They may possibly benefit more from individual therapy and/or a referral to an intensive outpatient group therapy, a recovery program or some other higher level of care or appropriate service provider.
