Therapy Groups Open for Referral


Having been mentored by some of the creators and founders of group therapy, I can impart to you some of the wisdom I have gained across more than 40 years of practicing the art. My groups are built around carefully selected individual members whose identification with each other increases self –esteem and confidence for all. 

Encouragement from peers plays a large role in the improvement of group members over time . Our mature leadership as marriage and family counselors will allow you to develop meaningful relationships with your fellow group members. 

Anxiety, depression, and obsessive thinking cause undue suffering for many individuals. Becoming a member of one of our therapy groups may prove to be a turning point in your life.
