Therapy Groups

Structured group work has been a successful approach for many of our patients who are seeking mental health support. Attendees receive evidence-based information from our counselors on topics such as parenting, anxiety, depression, and strategies to support their well-being.

Use of the camera or microphone in Zoom groups is not required.
