Group Therapy

If you're considering psychotherapy, several options are available. One of those options is group therapy.

Depending on the nature of your problem, group therapy can be an ideal choice for addressing your concerns and making positive changes in your life.

Group therapy involves one or more psychologists who lead a group of roughly five to 15 patients. Typically, groups meet for an hour or two each week. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only.

Many groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, obesity, panic disorder, or social anxiety. Below is a list of some of our groups.

Hoarding Disorder Group

The group takes place weekly and consists of 16 sessions of cognitive behavioral therapy for compulsive hoarding. Treatment will focus on motivational enhancement, learning organizational skills, cognitive restructuring, learning to discard, and learning how to reduce acquisition.

Unified Protocol Adolescent Group

The Unified Protocol Adolescent Group begins with a 6 week Adolescent Introduction to the Unified Protocol Group. Teens will learn to increase emotional awareness as they make connections between their behaviors, thoughts, and physical sensations. During the group they will start to build a plan to experiment with new ways of facing uncomfortable emotions. Separate family meetings will be scheduled during this introduction group. After the 6 week introduction group, teens will transfer to our Adolescent Unified Protocol Practice Group where they will practice challenging their emotions using the skills they have learned. This group is open to teenagers with Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
