Counseling & Wellness Center

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. 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.

Please call the Counseling and Wellness Center for more information about any of our group offerings and/or to schedule a pre-group screening for a group you're interested in.
