Group Therapy

Are you having a difficult time handling the struggles in your life?

Could you use a non-judgemental ear to listen, somebody who really understands what you’re going through?

Do you really need to talk to somebody, but you don’t know who would be willing to listen?

Do you wish you had more of a sense of community in your life, instead of feeling alone?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then group therapy could be the solution you’ve been seeking. Group therapy differs from individual therapy by holding therapeutic sessions in a group setting run by a therapist instead of in a private one-on-one setting with a therapist. In these group sessions, patients share their thoughts and experiences with the whole group, allowing them to support one another while being supported by a group of people who understand what you’re going through.

Group therapy helps you find a sense of community with others who are going through similar things as you while giving you access to valuable therapy that can truly help you feel better.

Group therapy’s effectiveness lies in its ability to help you find connections with other people and their experiences. These therapist-guided sessions will help you learn more about yourself and how to improve the way you feel, while feeling support from others who understand your experience.

DBT stands for Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and was developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. It is a treatment approach that is structured, skills-focused and is based on the biosocial theory. The biosocial theory can help explain why some individuals may be more sensitive to distress. By learning about the interaction between an individual’s personality and their environment can give insight into how they navigate the world. One possibility is that 1) some individuals lack the emotion regulation skills to be effective in relationships and 2) their environment may be contributing to their emotional distress and inability to use coping skills. The goal then of DBT is to teach individuals coping skills and gain a better understanding of themselves and their interactions with others to live their best life. DBT has been shown to be an effective treatment for individuals challenged with various mental health conditions. Some important DBT concepts:

  • Dialectics- two opposing beliefs can be true at the same time. 
  • DBT is made of four modules: mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance
  • Please be advised this is not DBT treatment, this is a skills group only. If you are seeking DBT treatment, please call our office and we can provide some referrals.
