Why Group Therapy?
We want to feel seen and heard. We want human connection. We want to feel like we belong. With group therapy, you get the best of both worlds: the ear of a trained therapist, and the expertise and compassion of your peers. Members learn about themselves by understanding one another. This collective learning based on interpersonal exchanges is transformative.

Common Misperceptions about Group Therapy
Reprinted with permission from the Virginia Commonwealth University website:
“I will be forced to tell all of my deepest thoughts, feelings and secrets to the group.”
“Group therapy will take longer than individual therapy because I will have to share the time with others.”
“I will be verbally attacked by the leaders and by other group members.”
“Group therapy is second-best to individual therapy.”
“It is hard for me to talk to people; I'll never be able to share in a group.”
