Group Therapy

Group therapy is a unique form of psychotherapy. A psychodynamic group is facilitated by a therapist who leads and actively engages with the members. Group setting allows for learning and growing from the support of both the therapist and other group members. Each individual member is simultaneously a guide and a learner. Weekly psychotherapy groups create feelings of belonging, as well as being connected to others who share similar concerns.

Group size is a minimum of three and maximum of six members. Prior to joining a group, you will be asked to schedule a 30 minute office appointment at which time we will talk about what you are looking for in the group and it will be a way to see if it feels like the group will be a good fit for you. You will be asked to fill out a brief form.

I offer two weekly psychotherapy groups. If you are interested in becoming a member of either of these groups, please contact me.

Women over Fifty (WOW)
Tuesdays: 5:30-7:00pm

This weekly group is for women facing multiple life transitions in the second half of their lives. A few areas of interest are a career that no longer has meaning; aging family members, loss, aging, and finding creativity.

Compassion and Caregiving
Wednesdays: 5:30- 7:00pm

This weekly psychotherapy group is for adults in the role of caregiver. Caregiving can easily create feelings of isolation, guilt, shame, resentment, and other complicated emotions. Caregiving is rarely easy, and perhaps especially so without support. This group provides a safe compassionate setting to talk, listen, and learn.
