Group therapy addresses the way we think, feel, and behave.
By integrating the mind, body, and spirit in the healing process, individuals learn to address their personal challenges in order to gain serenity, inner peace, and well-being. Our groups provide safe, affirming spaces that empower each participant through learning new skills and honoring each person’s experiences. Our staff understands the importance of supporting you with high-quality mental health counseling services during your journey.

How do I join a group?  You must be a current client actively receiving individual therapy with one of our therapists. Discuss your interest in joining a group with your therapist, who will then communicate to our Intake Department which group you should join.  If you would like more information about our groups or group therapy, please contact our Intake Department at 614-948-3273.  Group therapy fees are billed to your insurance. If you insurance does not cover group therapy, you will be billed $40/session/person.
