Group therapy is an opportunity to experience yourself with others in a safe, supportive environment, and to learn and practice new and different ways of relating to others; ways that are more satisfying and rewarding than what you are probably accustomed to if you are intersted in group therapy. Group therapy is also an opportunity for you to see how others experience you, once again in a safe, supportive environment, and to have the opportunity to make and practice changes in your approach to others in response to how they experience you. It’s an opportunity for you to learn to feel comfortable and at ease in a group of people who know you well and who you know well in return, and who support each other in improving and enriching their lives.
*I am currently offering both in-person therapy and remote therapy via phone or videoconference.
