Group therapy helps people move in the direction of vitality and healing – increasing one’s capacity to be both more connected in relationships and more fully oneself in life.
Group therapy is my treatment of choice for working on the “stuff” that comes up in relationship with others. Things like social anxiety, tendencies to people please, difficulties with vulnerability or connection. Struggles with things like shame, communicating needs and wants, feeling worthy of love and belonging. It’s helpful for people who long to be seen and known (by others and by themselves) but struggle to let themselves show up fully. And it’s good for people who grapple with anger (too much or not enough), have ambivalence about closeness, or want to deepen their capacity to express their full range of thoughts and feelings.
It is a place to learn about oneself in a rich and complex way while also skill building and nourishing attachment needs.
Instead of talking one on one with a therapist, group members interact with 5-8 others. The therapeutic process is enriched and magnified by this dynamic interpersonal experience.
I am such a fan of group therapy that I’ve spent thousands of hours leading groups, being a member of groups, and learning about groups. I have earned the Certified Group Psychotherapist designation which means I’m considered a specialist in group therapy.
I offer two types of groups: Interpersonal Process Groups which are open to all, and a Training Group which is open to therapists-only.
