What is group counseling?
Group counseling can offer benefits and rewards that individual counseling alone cannot. For example, group members can act as a social support network, provide you with encouragement as you tackle specific challenges, and hold you accountable to your plans and goals.
Taking on any new challenge can be daunting and overwhelming, and it may sometimes feel as though no one else understands what you are experiencing. Hearing other group members share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences helps you to know that you are not alone in your struggles. Each group member provides a unique perspective that can illuminate all of the diverse ways to think about a situation or solve a problem. In this way, a group can open your mind to a broader set of strategies and tools for self-improvement.
New Weekly Group Meeting for Ages 18-25, Starting in January 2017
Let’s build a community together. Are you in college and seeking more connection with people your age? Just graduated and wondering what’s next? Or just feeling a little lost and isolated in this big city?
We’re pleased to announce a new group to help you connect with your peers. Together in a small group setting, you can share your experiences, talk about the challenges of living independently, navigating new relationships, and exploring your identity.
The group meets weekly, and is an opportunity to create a safe and confidential space for mutual support and understanding. It’s co-facilitated by therapists Yoko Iwaki, PHD, MHC-LP and Ashley Cooper, MHC-LP, who offer a unique integration of relational and skills-based activities to help guide the group.
