VIRTUAL GROUP THERAPY
Healing through Community, Safely
There are two kinds of people in the world. The first kind hears “group”-anything and thinks, “Wow, great! Connecting with new people! I’m in!” The second kind of person hears the word “group” and seriously considers hiding under the bed. If you’re the first kind of person, welcome! Feel free to skip this next bit. If you’re the second kind of person, here are some reasons to give our virtual groups a chance.
Human beings are social animals, and we need connection to heal and thrive. Although individual sessions are amazing in their own way, groups have something special to offer: the ability to connect with others who struggle with the same things we do. The beauty of a group is that everyone is invested in creating a supportive, non-judgmental, emotionally safe space where every member gets the benefit of every other member’s experience.
Sometimes, the best way to heal is to help. Being a part of a group stirs our innately human instinct to support and empower one another. In addition to being the recipient of the group’s wisdom, you will also sometimes be a provider of that wisdom. It’s a pretty awesome way to realize your strength and feel good about your own journey.
It’s affordable! Whether using your insurance coverage or paying out of pocket, group fees are significantly less than individual sessions.
We hope we’ve convinced you to give groups a shot! Please keep scrolling to learn more about our groups:
