Group therapy can be a complementary or independent treatment modality. At Collaborative, we utilize group therapy to foster multiple perspectives by using other member’s minds through explicit communication.
Attending group therapy can be intimidating if you have not experienced group therapy before. Our philosophy is that group therapy can be utilized as a training group to promote healthier relationships outside of the therapy group. We encourage members to seek individual therapy if attending a group, though this is not mandatory.
Most Collaborative groups are open-ended and do not have a specific start or end date (unless otherwise specified). Our groups are rooted in interpersonal communication between members and providers. Therefore, when a new member is looking to join a group, the current group members will discuss their thoughts and feelings towards welcoming a new member. Our providers believe that this is the member’s group, and their emotions are the primary focus.
Before enrolling in a group, we ask that the prospective member meets with one of the group providers to evaluate the suitability for group therapy, gather initial information, and create a sense of comfort when entering the group for the first time.
We offer a variety of group therapy options dedicated to different topics of interest.
Two therapists host each group to detect and support various dynamic changes during each session.
