Find a Group
Group therapy can be a powerful method of counseling. Groups provide a safe environment which encourages support of its members and personal and relationship growth. Some groups are structured around a theme. Other groups, with less structure, help members learn more about themselves and the way they interact. In couples’ groups, participants improve their relationships and support others in doing the same.
