Group Counseling

This style of counseling involves meeting with a small group of your peers who are facing similar concerns. Groups are facilitated by counselors trained to promote interpersonal learning. Our groups tend to have a particular focus or theme, some of which are more specific than others. You would be meeting with the same group of people and facilitators each week. Group members are encouraged to discuss their difficulties, changes they want to make in life, and how to make those changes. Groups often provide a kind of support and experience that is not possible in other settings. All group members agree to maintain confidentiality.

*Group Counseling is unlimited

Esperamos facilitar un ambiente en el que puedas compartir tus dificultades y preocupaciones, y puedas recibir apoyo, ánimo, retroalimentación y múltiples perspectivas de otros individuos en un ambiente seguro y confidencial.

Cada miembro tendrá la oportunidad de traer cualquier tema o problemática que considere importante para el grupo. El enfoque principal del grupo en terapia se centra en las interacciones entre los miembros. Se anima a los miembros a dar apoyo y retroalimentación a los demás, y a trabajar con las reacciones y respuestas que les suscitan las aportaciones de otros miembros."
