Therapy provides a safe and nonjudgmental environment where participants can learn new skills and gain emotional support. This mode of therapy is most effective for acquiring novel skillsets and processing personal experiences. Research supports its use in improving perspective- taking and empathy.
Our practice offers a variety of therapeutic and supportive groups annually, including groups focused on mindfulness, social skills, and stress management. In addition to the specific group content, the communal aspect helps promote the development of healthy relationships and enables participants to benefit from a supportive and positive environment.
Some of the many benefits of group therapy include:
- Increased self-awareness
- Improved self-confidence
- New coping skills and adaptive behaviors
- Enhanced communication skills
- Validation and acceptance by same-age peers
