GROUP THERAPY & CLASSES

Group therapy is effective in treating many mental health challenges, including anxiety and depression. One advantage of our groups and classes is that you not only learn skills from a trained professional, but you will also connect with and learn from other group members. Our groups and classes provide a structured approach to tackling some of the underlying issues that contribute to anxiety and depression. Each is comprised of teachings as well as exercises within and between classes to foster skills, increase resilience, and improve quality of life.

Please feel free to review our group therapy and class offerings. If you are ready to sign up or you would like to learn more, please contact us.
