Group Therapy

The purpose of group therapy is to help individuals better understand themselves in the context of their relationships so that they can make more informed, healthy, and adaptive choices based on a deeper awareness of their feelings, interpersonal behaviors, reactions and patterns. Unlike individual psychotherapy that focuses on helping clients improve through interventions from a therapist, group therapy allows participants to observe others in the group, receive valuable feedback, and benefit from social interactions. For these reasons, group therapy is often the most effective “therapy of choice” depending on your current needs.

We are currently taking registrations for the following group therapy options:

Middle-School Academic Achievement Small Group

Is your middle schooler struggling with time management or organization? Do they have a desire to do well in school but become overwhelmed with starting their assignments or lack motivation to complete them? Are they frequently distracted or become easily frustrated when it is time to engage academically? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Middle School Academic Achievement Small Group would be a great fit for your child! The questions above are all executive functioning skills that may be lagging in your child. The good news is that they can be taught with a variety of tips and tricks. This group will provide hands-on strategies to assist with time management, organization, and study skills. This group will also help students learn how to slow down their brain and focus on the task at hand when school becomes a bit too overwhelming. The small group environment of 3-5 students will provide for more individualized instruction and support by a licensed educator and student advocate.
