Group therapy is a highly effective type of therapy where clients increase self-awareness of their relational patterns, develop ties to a set of peers supportive of their growth and changes, and learn from watching and responding to other group members’ therapeutic work. Group therapy can be one of the most potent and transformative experiences that psychotherapy can provide.
Group therapy can be appropriate for individuals seeking to improve their interpersonal functioning, self-acceptance, interpersonal trust issues, assertiveness, productive conflict skills, and to deepen their relationships by developing their own access to their vulnerability and authentic self. Group therapy can also be helpful for individuals working through a range of symptoms related to depression, anxiety, adjustment, and relational issues. Theses interpersonal groups consist of 8 people (or less) and meet weekly. I facilitate these groups with a co-therapist.
