Groups provide support. Hearing from others with similar issues helps you see that you’re not alone in having challenges. Many groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, panic disorder, social anxiety, or substance abuse. Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, helping people deal with a range of issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness and low self-esteem. Groups often help those who have experienced loss. Groups can be open or closed. We offer closed group to help our clients maintain a privacy and feel comfortable among peers.
