Group Counseling

We offer a diverse variety of therapy and support groups to meet your needs. All of our groups are led by experienced counselors. Please click on the link below for a complete listing of our current group offerings. By participating in group counseling you may benefit from the mutual support and feedback you get from meeting with a small group of individuals who have similar concerns. Group counseling also provides the opportunity to practice new behaviors and assert yourself in ways that might not be possible in individual counseling. In fact, most research has shown group counseling to be equal to or more effective to individual treatment.

Holding on to courage amidst a barrage of unhelpful thoughts, remaining calm along the ever-changing journey of young adulthood, coping with the pressures of independence away from home, and facing endless academic challenges, might be the toughest things to deal with while adapting to life in college.

'Still, I Grow' is a weekly meditative space created for you to use stillness to relax and refocus your hard-working mind, replenish your energy, and provide respite from the often exhausting pace and overwhelming responsibilities of college life.  Guidance in meditation will be provided.
